March 9, 2023 12:58PM EST
(ASSOCIATED PRESS) – U.S. product regulators said Thursday that Yeti has recalled 1.9 million coolers and gear cases because magnets can come detached from them, posing a risk of serious injury or death.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said consumers should immediately stop using the four recalled products and contact Yeti for refund information.
The products being recalled are the Sidekick dry gear case, M20 soft backpack cooler and M30 soft cooler, version 1.0 and 2.0.
If swallowed, two or more high-powered magnets can attract to each other or to another metal object and get stuck in the digestive system.
