A $5 tic-tac-toe game Target sold for a few months is being recalled because the magnets on the pieces can fall off.
The little game includes red and pink X's and hearts – and those pieces have magnets on the back so they can stick to the board. But Target is worried about those magnets falling off the pieces, after getting one report of it happening.
There haven't been any injuries yet, but the recall says the magnets could pose a choking hazard. And here's the more terrifying extrapolation: if two or more are swallowed, they could reconnect and link together within the intestines and "clamp onto body tissues, causing intestinal obstructions, perforations, sepsis and death."
Anyway, about 19,000 were sold at locations nationwide, from December of 2016 through February of this year.
If you've got one, you can get a refund for your $5. Call Target at 800-440-0680, or go to the Target recalls page.
The retailer by the way has a specific section on its Facebook dedicated to recalls. It's the simplest way to see all Target recalls, rather than sorting through the different sections on the Target website.
