Tuesday Mattel recalled 9 million toys due to a potentially deadly magnet. The recall includes toys containing small, rare-earth magnets, which are twenty times stronger than an average magnet. The magnets pose a risk to children because if they swallow more than one, the magnets may attract each other through the intestinal walls and tear into soft tissue. This is exactly what happened to Kenny Sweet, who suffered fatal injuries after ingesting these magnets, and died just months before his second birthday.
