What is the problem?

Magnets holding the pumpkin shell pieces together can become loose, posing an ingestion hazard to young children. If swallowed, these magnets can link together inside a child's intestines and clamp onto body tissues, causing intestinal obstructions, perforations, sepsis and death. Internal injury from magnets can pose serious lifelong health effects.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The recalled product is an adult seasonal craft item that, when assembled, resembles a turkey with a pumpkin-shaped body. Before assembly, the product resembles a pumpkin that has been cut in half. The kit comes with various foam pieces that are used to decorate the outer pumpkin shell and has six small magnets that hold the pieces together. The product is packaged in a round, clear plastic container.

Information on where these items sold new+: The recalled products were sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide from August of 2012 to October of 2012 for approximately $8.
