According to a news source, the company that makes Buckyballs®, a desk toy containing small, high-powered magnets, has decided to stop making the product, evidently caving to pressure from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which issued a notice of proposed rulemaking in September 2012 designed to prohibit the sale of such products due to their purported risks to children who could swallow the magnets. Maxfield and Oberton, which CPSC targeted with an administrative complaint earlier this year, will apparently sell its remaining stock of Buckyballs®. The company states on its Website that it has “sadly decided to stop production of Buckyballs and Buckycubes” due to CPSC’s “baseless and relentless legal badgering.” Still, the company indicates that it is getting “ready for the next generation of Bucky.” See, October 31, 2012.
