United Kingdom

Risk level
High

Risk type
Choking

Risk description
The product presents a high risk of choking as it's reasonably foreseeable that a child could confuse the magnets with the 'allsorts' sweets it was designed to imitate. As the product is capable of fitting into a small parts cylinder, a choking hazard exists for a child under three years of age. If two or more magnets were swallowed, there is a risk that the magnets become drawn to each other in the digestive system, which could cause serious injury or death if medical attention is not sought immediately. The product does not meet the requirements of the Food Imitations (Safety) Regulations 1989.

Corrective measures
The product has been voluntarily withdrawn from the market and recalled from end users.
