WASHINGTON, D.C. — High-powered magnet sets called Buckyballs and Buckycubes are being recalled.

The reason for the recall is defects in the design, warnings, and instructions which can create a serious risk for injury to children.

The recalled magnet sets were sold in six stores across the nation and online, including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Barnes & Noble.

Consumers are advised to take the sets away from children and teenagers and return them.
