Holiday-Presents Daily, edition number 1 – Friday the 15th of October 2021 – Holiday-Presents Daily; Your Safety Update
Today: Highly Magnetic Toys
Traditionally, the end of the year is a time of conviviality and togetherness. Giving presents is an undeniable part of this. But what should you pay attention to when it comes to the safety of these presents? There are still products available that are (partly) unsafe. Fortunately, this is just a fragment of the total offer.
We are here to keep you up to date on the latest developments in product safety. On the one hand, we pay attention to products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts. On the other hand, we provide information on details you should look out for when purchasing products that are still available.
Every week the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
Keep yourself informed to make sure that the present you give is a present that's safe. Once every weekday we will provide a newsletter including the latest news on product safety and recalls, important alerts and mentionable facts that relate to the safety of products. Millions of products have been recalled this year. Here's a video from the US Consumer Reports on how to protect yourself and your family. Hopefully our newsletter will add to your and your children's safety.
Highly Magnetic Toys
We kick off our Holiday-Presents Daily with the extremely hazardous magnetic toys / magnetic balls. These magnets effectively burn holes in a child's intestines or bowels if they swallow the little balls. The magnets stick together internally and through organs and tissues, and can cut off blood supply causing tissue to die. They are much more complex than button batteries to extract. The British 'Child Accident Prevention Trust' is one of the many sites on were you can find more information about these toys. Also, the US Consumer Reports Organization added a video that includes the safety issues.
This is just an example of a toy and its hazards that you need to be aware of. With our Holiday-Presents Daily we will continue to follow the news on Product Safety and we will continue to keep you informed.
