Tiny Magnets May Be Banned Following Death Of A Child

The Consumer Product Safety Commission may ban small, high-powered magnets like those found in small toys due to the safety hazard they pose to small children. Likewise, the ban follows the result of a 19-month-old girl dying from swallowing several magnets, and another 7,700 others who have been to the emergency room from eating them. Tragically, the little girl who died suffered from a condition known as, ischemic bowel when several of the batteries connected to one another, and perforated her bowl thus causing it to become septic. The small magnets in question were made originally by, Buckyball, which is now, call, United We Ball, and would be the only manufacturers under the ban.
