Magnet set, school supply makes recalls list

A popular school supply, high-powered magnet sets, and an eyelash curler have made this week’s recalls list.

A recall trust has been set up to help refund million of consumers who purchased high-powered magnet sets known as Buckyballs. The Consumer Product Safety Commission had previously announced a recall of all Buckyballs and Buckycubes.

Numerous children ingested these high-powered magnets and had to get them surgically removed. The recall trust has been set up as a part of the settlement between an officer of the company and the CPSC. Funds will be used to provide a refund to consumers once the trust becomes active.

If you have a Buckyballs or Buckycubes set you can request a refund in the next six months.

Avon is recalling nearly 480,000 ergonomic eyelash curlers. The curler can break and expose a metal pin which poses an eye injury hazard to consumers.

The company has received 24 reports of the product breaking, 13 injuries, and three injuries which required medical attention.

Avon sales representatives and Avon online sold the product from January 2007 through April 2014. You should stop using the product and return it to Avon in exchange for a refund or a Mega Effects Mascara.

Discount School Supply is recalling sorting boards due to a magnet ingesting risk and excessive lead levels.

The company has received six reports of the plywood backing cracking and making the small metal balls accessible to kids. You should stop children from using the recalled board and contact the company for a full refund
