Hazard identified

Health Canada has determined that the magnets do not meet the magnetic force requirements of the Toys Regulations and pose an ingestion hazard.

The results of swallowing small powerful magnets can be very serious and life-threatening. Swallowing incidents have often resulted in considerable damage to the gastrointestinal tissues and required emergency surgical treatment. For survivors, there can be long-term health consequences.

As of June 2021, the company has received one report of injury in Canada.
