What is the problem?

The two magnets holding the pencil case lid closed can detach, posing an ingestion hazard. When these two magnets are swallowed, they can link together inside a child's intestines and result in serious internal injuries.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The Gadget Pencil Cases are 9 1/2 inches by 4 inches by 1 inch plastic boxes with spring-loaded compartments for a pencil sharpener, scissors, ruler, eraser, tape and five pencils. The lid contains two 9/16 inch by 1/16 inch by 1/8 inch magnets on the lid. The pencil case covers are available in four different designs: Avengers, Cars, Miles from Tomorrowland and Multi-Princess.

These items were sold new+ at Disney Stores nationwide during June 2015 for about $15.
