WASHINGTON, D.C. – Owners of Buckyballs and Buckycubes can now obtain refunds. These loose, high powered magnets pose a deadly risk to young children, tweens, and teens, if ingested. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging consumers to immediately stop use of all Buckyballs and Buckycubes and visit BuckyballsRecall.com to request a refund.
Consumers should visit BuckyballsRecall.com, which has an online registration page to file a claim and is active and easy for consumers to use. Consumers may receive a refund no greater than the purchase price of the product, and partial refunds may be provided depending on the number of magnets returned. Consumers will have until January 17, 2015 to submit requests to the Trustee for refunds.
