Consumer products - Ingestion hazard
What to do

Immediately stop using the recalled product and return product to the place of purchase for a refund.

Affected products

This recall involves Netic Pen - The Transformable Magnetic Pen with UPC 802962347892. Each package contains 13 magnetic tubes and 12 metal balls.


Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these toys do not meet the Toy Regulations in Canada. Specifically, the product failed to meet the magnetic force requirements and pose an ingestion hazard.

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 September 11, 2023, the company has received no report of incident or injury in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled product away from children and return to the place of purchase for a full refund.
