Vianda branded Magnastix Toy Construction Sets, sold with an unknown model number, an unknown model number and an unlisted barcode.

These Toy Construction Sets are marketed as children’s magnetic building blocks formed into the shape of multi-colored sticks, with each set containing approximately 103 pieces. The product is also sold online, notably on eBay, and is packaged in coloured cardboard boxes with a clear plastic window.

No barcodes, EANs, UPCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, model numbers, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Vianda branded Magnastix Toy Construction Sets include the reported finding that the Toy’s pieces contain a small magnet with a high magnetic flux. If a child swallows one or more magnet and/or other metallic objects, they could attract one another causing intestinal blockage or perforation.

In addition, the product’s pieces are small and the magnet can easily be detached during normal handling or play activities that could be reasonably expected with utilization of the Toy. If the child puts these small pieces in his or her mouth, it could cause choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction, all serious health and safety hazards requiring immediate medical and/or surgical intervention.

As a direct consequence of this reported defect, the child could suffer life-threatening or life-altering injuries from the ingestion and/or choking risks.

Consequently, a recall of these recalled Vianda branded Magnastix Toy Construction Sets, and a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace as well as the removal of this product listing by the online marketplace has been ordered.
