Polly Pocket Toys Recalled As Choking Hazard

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

4.4 million Mattel Polly Pocket toys have been recalled due to the danger of choking and other ingestion injuries.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of the magnetic Polly Pocket sets and urged Holiday shoppers to avoid buying toy sets with small magnets for children under six. This recall doesn’t involve Polly Pocket sets currently on store shelves.
The CPSC received 170 reports of the small magnets falling from Polly Pocket dolls and accessories, and three children swallowed more than one magnet suffering perforated intestines requiring surgery. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the two can attach to one another and cause perforations, infections, or blockages, which can be fatal.
