Small magnets inside the four game pieces that were sold with the "Cars" backpack can fall out of their plastic enclosure. Magnets found by young children can be swallowed or aspirated. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforation or blockage, which can be fatal.
The recall includes about 110,000 items. The 12-inch Cars backpack was sold with four sealed game pieces that contain magnets. The game pieces included a red plastic car; a blue plastic car; and two red-and-black plastic disks that have "GAS," "OIL" and "SERVICE" printed in red letters on the black perimeter of the disks. "Warning: Choking Hazard-Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years" is printed on the backpack hangtag. "Disney Presents a PIXAR film" is printed on the gray vinyl front of the backpack.
Target stores nationwide from February 2007 through September 2007 for about $13.
