We are committed to the safety and health of students as an integral part of their science education. In light of this we are encouraging schools to take advantage of the magnet recall and replacement offer that has been announced by United Scientific Supplies, our supplier of these magnets.

Selected magnets have been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to excessive lead levels in the surface coatings on them. The recalled magnets are steel horseshoe magnets available in multiple sizes from many educational distributors including Delta Education – our part numbers and descriptions are noted below.

3" Horseshoe Magnet - 130-2971
6" Horseshoe Magnet - 130-0254

United Scientific Supplies will replace all recalled magnets that were purchased from us. If you have not already received information about this recall, please contact Delta Education’s customer service to learn where to send your recalled magnets at no cost to your school.

We have removed the recalled magnets from our inventory and are shipping only safe versions of the identified products. None of the other magnets in our product line have officially been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) at this time.

For more information please contact Delta Education at 800-442-5444.
