Affected products

This recall involves ZDZBLX Magnet. The magnets are multi-colored and come in a rectangular package. The SKU for this product is: X0034LSBTF.

Issue

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 14th, 2023, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ZDZBLX magnets and return the product for a refund.
