This recall involves high-powered magnet sets distributed with Adobe "Effective Collaboration is Magnetic" promotional materials. The promotional materials were distributed in a green box with a black lid and contain 12 high-powered magnets which are magnetically affixed to a laminated green cardboard sheet. The spherical silver magnets are about 5 millimeter in diameter. The text "With Adobe Connect it all just clicks" is printed in a circular shape around the magnets.
Consumers should immediately stop using the magnets and either discard them or contact Adobe for instructions on returning the magnets.
The firm has received no reports of incidents or injuries. CPSC has received 80 reports of incidents involving ingestion of other high powered magnets, resulting in 79 reports seeking medical intervention.
The magnets were distributed nationwide by Adobe as part of a promotional package for their Adobe Connect product during November 2012 at no cost to consumers.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
