Virginia Child Safety: The Danger of High-Powered Magnets

September 19, 2013 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

When it comes to keeping your child safe, no danger is too small to take seriously. High-powered magnets can be a serious risk to your child’s safety, as their attraction is up to eight-times stronger than those of magnets found in children’s toys.

These magnets are small enough to be swallowed and can then attract each other inside the child’s stomach. Some incidents of swallowed magnets have required surgery in order to remove the magnets and repair any damage done to the stomach and intestinal tissue.

Common Symptoms

If you think your child may have swallowed magnets, look for these symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal Pains

Take your child to see a doctor immediately, and understand that multiple magnets may look like only one in X-rays.
