Retailers recall small, super strong magnets

WASHINGTON — Six retailers have agreed to a voluntary recall of a brand of potentially dangerous high-powered magnet sets after the importer refused to participate.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday that Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond, Brookstone, Marbles the Brain Store, ThinkGeek, and Hallmark retailers are recalling ‘‘Buckyballs’’ and ‘‘Buckycubes’’ after the CPSC received 54 reports of children and teens ingesting the product, with all but one of those requiring medical intervention.
