August 14, 2007: Fisher-Price Toy Recall
Mattel recalls character toys, dolls, and play sets due to excessive levels of lead and loose magnets in August 2007
Batman and One Piece Magnetic Action Figure Sets
Recall Reason: Small, powerful magnets inside the accessories of the toy figures can fall out and be swallowed or aspirated by young children. If more than one magnet is swallowed, they can attract inside the body and cause intestinal perforation, infection or blockage which can be fatal.
