Please consult the photograph above for details of the Toy’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Wooden Block Children Toys can be found on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, ALDI Stores has recalled certain batch/lots of Jack ‘N’ Jill Wooden Block Children Toys from the Australian marketplace due to the reported finding that small magnets may detach from the Blocks and, if placed in the mouth and/or swallowed, pose serious risks of choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.

Specifically, 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 Wooden Block Children Toys, please do not use them nor let your children play with or near the Toys. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 0-0-0, your closest hospital or emergency centre equipped to properly treat laceration, GI tract laceration damage and/or bowel obstruction.
