Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Foam Pumpkin Turkey Craft Kit Recalled

Date:
November 21, 2012
Category:
Miscellaneous
Company/Brand:
Jo-Ann Stores Inc.
The Danger:
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. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Description:
The recalled product is an adult seasonal craft item that, when assembled, resembles a turkey with a pumpkin-shaped body. About 1,800 kits have been recalled. 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.
Sold At:
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.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled kit and return it for a full refund to any Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store. Contact Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores toll free at 888-739-4120 or online at http://www.joann.com/ - go to the PRODUCT RECALL link on the bottom right corner of the page.
