Fisher-Price has issued a massive recall on certain toy trains that could lead to choking problems in small children.

The East Aurora, New York based company issued the recall for "Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Troublesome Truck & Crates and Troublesome Truck & Paint" toys because of potential choking hazards with the magnets that connect one train to another.

The recall was issued on October 19th and affects over 20,000 units. According to the press release from United State's Consumer Product Safety Commission, the toys are being recalled due to faulty magnets.

The small plastic piece containing a high-powered magnet that connects one train to another can detach or become loose, posing choking and magnet ingestion hazards.

The toys were sold across the entire United States and around 400 units were sold in Canada. The model numbers of the recalled toys are HBJ89 (Troublesome Truck & Crates) and HBJ90 (Troublesome Truck & Paint) and can be found on the bottom of the train cars.

You can contact Fisher-Price during normal business hours to get a refund if you purchased one of the recalled toys. Fisher Price Inc. toll-free at 855-853-6224 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
