Made in China and sold by Battat, they were recalled because the magnets could fall out and be swallowed by children, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Each of the toy Magnabild sets included small magnetic rods, metal balls, triangles and squares for children to create designs.

The government safety agency said there had been 16 incidents of magnets falling out of the play sets but no injuries had been reported. If swallowed, the magnets could attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages.
