Design Ideas has recalled certain office and refrigerator magnets because the magnets can detach, posing a serious risk of perforation, sepsis, and even death if swallowed by a child. If the magnets are swallowed they can link together inside the intestines and can cause serious internal injury that may result in lifelong health concerns.
The recalled magnets are Neatlife Rubber Ducky Magnets, Design Ideas Blowfish Magnets, and Design Ideas Splat Magnets and were sold at novelty and gift stores nationwide from March 2007 to February 2014. The magnet is underneath the plastic decorative objects and the model number is located on the bottom of the package. The model numbers are:
- Rubber Ducky: 3205121 or 993205114
- Blowfish: 3205122
- Splat: 3205078
Consumers should remove the magnets from children and should contact Design Ideas at 800-426-6394 for information on how to obtain a refund.
