Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Neopuzzle Children’s Construction Toys are subject to this recall:

  • Neopuzzle Children’s Construction Toys, consisting of various small plastic shapes with magnets welded between two halves. The Toys are sold in four (4) different shapes in each set with five (5) different sets of 18, 32, 56, 74 or 100 pieces with the following product codes: 474110, 474123, 474134, 474147 and 474152.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs, or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

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

According to the ACCC, due to suspected failure of the plastic welds, the Toy’s individual pieces may separate and expose the internal magnets. Due to this defect, the product fails Australia’s mandatory standard Consumer Protection Notice No 5 of 2010: Children’s toys with magnets.

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 a child swallows more than one magnet, the magnets can stick together across the walls of the child’s intestine or other digestive tissue, which can lead to internal injuries and even death. These magnets may need emergency surgical intervention to remove.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Neopuzzle Children’s Construction Toys, please do not let your child play with or near them. Instead, kindly return the Toy to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
