An interesting question! It’s unlikely, at this stage, that the transponders would cause any problems, since only the manufacturer would know they were there.
The only way I can think of to kill the transponders would be to blow the circuits in the microchip with a jolt of electricity. Static electric discharge is often enough to do this, so you could subject the transponders to a charge, or place the tagged products close to a device that emits a jolt of electromagnetic energy. Or you could put them in a microwave oven.
Perhaps our readers will have other suggestions for killing the tags.
