Magnet Safety Information
Keep away from ALL children.
Be aware of dropped or separated magnets. When not in use, locate all magnets and count them individually to maintain an accurate inventory. Store all magnets in a child safe container to be sure that none are missing.
Seek immediate medical attention or contact the poison control center immediately if you think magnets were ingested. It is possible that X-rays or prompt surgical removal will be required. Do not wait for symptoms to appear as it is feasible that by then it will be too late for medical intervention. Symptoms of magnet ingestion are often non-specific (abdominal pain, fever, etc.), and can take from hours to weeks to appear. By then, the damage can be severe. Untreated ingestions of magnets are likely to cause intestinal blockage, perforation, bleeding, infection, and death.
