This image released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission shows Buckyballs, a high-powered desktop magnetic toy for adults. In an unusual move, the Consumer Product Safety Commission filed an administrative complaint Wednesday against New York-based Maxfield and Oberton, the manufacturer of Buckyballs. The desktop toys have small but very powerful magnets that are strong enough to mold into different shapes. Some young children are swallowing the tiny magnets and getting hurt, and teens also have ingested the magnetic balls after trying to mimic tongue piercings. (AP Photo/CPSC)
