YETI has issued a voluntary recall of 1.9 million Hopper M20, Hopper M30 1.0 and 2.0, and SideKick Dry products citing issues raised by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The concerns related to the magnet closures featured on the above products. In some cases, these magnet closures can fail, releasing the strong magnets found inside.
According to the CPSC, “When two or more high-powered magnets are swallowed, the ingested magnets can attract to each other, or to another metal object, and become lodged in the digestive system. This can result in perforations, twisting and/or blockage of the intestines, infection, blood poisoning, and death.”
The CPSC and YETI have both stated that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and contact Yeti for refund information.

The magnet-lined closures on these products can fail and release the magnets, which poses a risk of serious injury or death if ingested. We ask all customers currently in possession of the Hopper M20, Hopper M30, and SideKick Dry to immediately stop use of these products.
