Magnetic Maze Boards Recalled

Date:
August 26, 2010
Category:
Toys & Games
Company/Brand:
Lakeshore Learning Materials
The Danger:
The magnetic maze board's plastic wand can separate and expose a magnet that can be a choking hazard to children. Also, if a child has more than one of these toys and the magnets detach and are swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages; these can be fatal.
Description:
This recall involves about 18,500 wooden magnetic maze boards. Each wooden board has a clear plastic sheet that covers small wooden or plastic pieces located inside a maze. A plastic wand containing a magnet in its tip is attached to the board by a cord. The wand is used to move items inside the maze. The top of the board reads: "Who's Hiding in the Garden?," "Who's Hiding in the Ocean?," "Magnetic Counting Maze," "Magnetic Alphabet Board," or "My Community Magnetic Board."
Sold At:
Lakeshore Learning Materials stores nationwide, its catalogs, and online at lakeshorelearning.com from January 2009 through May 2010 singly or in sets, for between $30 and $40.
