Battat Magnabild Magnetic Building Sets Recalled

Date:
January 23, 2008
Category:
Toys & Games
Company/Brand:
Battat
The Danger:
Small magnets inside the building pieces can fall out. Magnets found by young children can be swallowed or aspirated, and if more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages, which can be fatal.
Description:
The recall involves about 125,000 293-piece (item number BB1502H) and 180-piece (item number BB1431H) Magnabild Magnetic Building System sets. Both sets come in rotating display cases that contain 1-inch and 4-inch rods with magnets, curved 1-inch rods, triangle and square pieces with magnets, square plastic building pieces, triangles and 5-sided pieces, and metal balls. The pieces come in different colors. All of the plastic building pieces, except the 4-inch flexible rods, have the word "Magnabild" in raised lettering on them. The item number is found on a hang tag attached to the set. The product is designed for children older than 3 years.
7,000 additional Battat Magnabild Building Systems were recalled on March 13, 2008.
Sold At:
Various retailers nationwide and online sellers from 2005 through 2007 for between $30 and $40.
What To Do:
Take the recalled Magnabild Magnetic Building System away from children and contact Battat to receive a pre-paid mailer to return the toy and to receive a free replacement product. For additional information, contact Battat at (800) 247-6144 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit their Web site at www.battatco.com.
