The recall is being initiated due to risk of magnet ingestion because tonies® has received one report in the US of the magnet detaching from a tonies® Block. No injuries have been reported.
When two or more high-powered magnets are swallowed, either intentionally by younger children or accidentally by older children, the ingested magnets can attract to each other, or to another metal object, and become lodged in the digestive system. This can result in perforations, twisting and/or blockage of the intestines, infection, blood poisoning and death.
No tonie figurines and no toniebox speakers are impacted by this recall. Your safety is our priority. We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product and for the inconvenience caused.
