Washington, DC - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission says magnets in a foam turkey kit could pose a hazard, and has issued a voluntary recall on the product.
CNN reports that CPSC recalled the craft kit - designed to create a foam pumpkin turkey -- after concerns that the magnets included with the seasonal adult product could pose a hazard if ingested by small children. No injuries have been reported.
About 1800 kits, made in China, were sold exclusively by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, based in Hudson, Ohio, between August and October of this year. They sell for about $8. Consumers can return the item for a full refund.
When assembled, the product resembles a turkey with a pumpkin-shaped body. The kit comes with various foam pieces to decorate the outer pumpkin shell and six small magnets that hold it together.
