Michelle’s reports on the dangers of a toy (magnetic building sets) resulted in the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall 3.4 million Magnetix building sets. She reported that tiny magnets found inside the plastic building pieces and rods could easily fall out and that those magnets found by young children could be swallowed or aspirated.
