3.8 Million Magnetix Sets Recalled

March 31, 2006
Rose Art Industries, Inc. has recalled 3.8 million Magnetix Magnetic Building Sets. Tiny magnets inside the plastic building pieces can fall out. If more than one are found and swallowed by a young child, they can attract to each other and cause intestinal perforation or blockage, which is fatal.

All Magnetix sets are affected by this recall, including the X-treme Combo, Micro, and Extreme sets. The sets contain 20 to 200 plastic building pieces and 20 to 100 1/2 inch diameter steel balls. The building pieces are red, yellow, blue, and green, and are shaped into squares, triangles, and cylinder rods.

The sets were sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us, Fred Meyer, Design Science Toys, Ltd., A. C. Moore, and other toy and arts and crafts stores nationwide, for between $20 and $60.

Consumers should stop using the sets immediately. To receive a free replacement product suitable for young children (under the age of 6), return the sets to Rose Art.
