Affected products

This voluntary recall involves STAX Insane Magnetic Building Blocks. Each set comes with 28 pieces and 1 magnetic tray, and it is available in 6 different colors/ styles.

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the magnets do not meet the magnetic force requirements of the Toys Regulations 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 22, 2023, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and return it to the retailer where it was purchased from in Canada.
