RECALL: About 1 Million Doggie Day Care Magnetic Toys Due to Magnets Coming Loose

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with California-based Mattel, today announced a voluntary recall about 1 million Doggie Day Care™ play sets. Small magnets inside the toys can fall out. Magnets found by young children can be swallowed or aspirated. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforation or blockage, which can be fatal. Mattel has received two reports of magnets coming loose. No injuries have been reported. The recalled Doggie Day Care play sets have various figures and accessories that contain small magnets.
