Consumer products - Injury hazard
What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled magnet set and return product for a refund.

Affected products

This recall involves sets of gray color rare earth 5mm sphere magnets packaged in an industrial plastic bag without a UPC number or brand. It would have had a sticker on the bag with the part#: MAG-N-5-SPHERE.


Rare earth magnets are small and powerful magnetic balls that can be used to build sculptures, puzzles, patterns, shapes, etc.

Small, powerful magnets can be easily swallowed by children of all ages, posing serious and potentially life-threatening risks.  

When more than one powerful magnet is swallowed in a short period of time, the magnets can attract one another while moving through the intestines. This can cause the intestines to twist, creating blockages or tearing of the intestinal walls.

As of March 27, 2023, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled magnet set away from children and return them for refund.

For more information, consumers can contact ABRA Electronics Corp. telephone at 1-800-361-5237 from 8:30am – 4:30pm EST, Monday through Friday, by email at

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.
