Speeding up Darwinism...

Post by Nikki Nyx » Sun Aug 13, 2017 6:46 pm

Fidget Spinners are choking and fire hazards.
Fidget spinners contain small pieces such as batteries and ball bearings which can be a serious choking hazard among children. Choking incidents have been reported in children as old as 14.

In May, a 10-year-old girl choked on part of her fidget spinner, which caused her to have the piece surgically removed.

In June, a Bluetooth-enabled fidget spinner that played music reportedly burst into flames after being left to charge for 45 minutes in a family home in Alabama. Fortunately the fire was caught by the family and only left a burn in the carpet.

In May, another battery-operated fidget spinner caught fire after being charged for less than half an hour. The family did not have the original charger and used one from another device.
