YETI® Soft Cooler and Gear Case Recall

Almost 2 million YETI® soft coolers and gear cases were recalled after a design flaw on the bags created an ingestion hazard. The recall involves the YETI® Hopper M20 Soft Backpack Cooler, Hopper M30 Soft Cooler 1.0 and 2.0, and the SideKick Dry Gear Case, all of which have been sold in multiple colors. According to the recall report, these products include a primary pocket closure lined with high-powered magnets enclosed in a heat-sealed strip. The safety risk comes from the magnet-lined closures, which can fail and result in the magnets detaching and pose a risk of severe injury or death if ingested.

The recall notice warned that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and to immediately contact YETI® to receive a complete refund or replacement product. 

If you or someone you love ingested or suffered injuries due to this dangerous design flaw, contact Morgan & Morgan today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation. We may be able to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve.

  • Why are the YETI® Products Recalled?

    In cooperation with Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), YETI® has voluntarily recalled the Hopper M20 Soft Backpack, Hopper M30 Soft Cooler versions 1.0 and 2.0, and the SideKick Dry Gear Case. The recalled products come with magnet-lined enclosures that can fail to release the magnets. In the case that these magnets are ingested, it could pose a severe risk of injury or death.

    While there have been no reports of magnet ingestion or related injuries yet, YETI® has received nearly 1,400 reports of the magnet-lined closures failing or deteriorating over time, including reports that the magnets inside the closures have either detached or gone missing entirely.

  • What Injuries Am I at Risk Of?

    According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, when an individual swallows two or more high-powered magnets while in your system, they can attract towards one another or to another metal object and become lodged in your digestive system. Once stuck, they can cause holes, create twisting and cause blockage of your intestines. Other issues caused by ingested magnets include infection, blood poisoning, and even death.

  • Which YETI® Products Have Been Recalled?

    As previously mentioned, on March 9, 2023, roughly 1.9 million YETI® products have been recalled due to a magnet ingestion hazard. The defective products were sold nationwide from March 2018 to January 2023 at retail stores like Dick's Sporting Goods, ACE Hardware, Academy Sports + Outdoors, and YETI®. The products were also available for purchase online on YETI's® website and Amazon.
