Cra-z-Geezer’s branded Thinking Putty / Hand Gum Magnetic Putty, sold with a model designation of 31111 and a UPC of 7340181905446

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Magnetic Putty Toy products include the inclusion of a small powerful Magnet, a component that is integral to the product’s design and function and possesses a high magnetic flux. The shape and size of the magnet allows a child to place it in his or her mouth and either choke on it or swallow it.

If the child chokes on the Magnet, s/he will suffer respiratory distress leading to possible respiratory arrest. If this situation is not rectified immediately, the child may suffer cardiac arrest and/or brain death.

If a child swallows more than one Magnet or a Magnet and objects that contain iron, steel or other materials of sufficient ferric content, these materials 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.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Cra-z-Geezer’s branded Thinking Putty / Hand Gum Magnetic Putty products do not comply with the requirements of the European Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users and a withdrawal of the product from the market withdrawn from the European marketplace has been ordered.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Cra-z-Geezer’s branded Thinking Putty / Hand Gum Magnetic Putty products nor let your child play with or near the Putty. Instead, please contact your retailer for a refund.
