Amazon removes magnetic putty from website over arsenic fears
Amazon has removed a children's toy from its website over fears it contains dangerously high levels of arsenic. Northamptonshire Trading Standards stressed it was just one product it has barred from being sold - not all magnetic putties. As part of an expanded investigation, other magnetic putties available on the market are now to be examined. A magnet included in the banned toy, which has no manufacturer or importer identification, was found to be 29 times over the allowed magnetic force and could be "Easily swallowed". Information is being shared with other regional bodies about the banned toy, according to Northamptonshire Trading Standards.
