Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves the Hape Best Bugs Magnetic Maze Toys.

The Maze consists of a wood frame with grooves for small magnetic balls to travel, and covered by a clear Lucite cover. A small magnetic pen is attached by a cord to the frame and is used by a child to guide the balls along their path. Four bugs are depicted on the frame which measures 24.5 centimetres by 24.5 centimetres by 2.1 centimetres and weighs less than one pound. The model number is E1709. The Hape logo can be found printed in brown on the front of the frame.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has determined that the Lucite cover of the Maze Toy can break and produce small components, posing a choking hazard to young children. The small components can also have sharp edges and points, posing a risk of injury to young children.

Neither Hape nor Health Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries in Canada related to the use of this product.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Maze Toy, please do not use them or allow your children to play with them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
