Risk description
The product presents a high risk of choking as the small magnetic balls were found to be small enough to fit completely into a small parts cylinder and as such, would be regarded as capable of causing a choking hazard 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. 49 magnetic spheres were tested and found to have a magnetic flux index greater than 50kG2mm2 with an average index of 142.3 kG2mm2.
