Mega brands recalling Magnaman, Magtastik and Magnetix

2.4 million magnetic toys being recalled could put your children at risk of choking.

Mega brands is voluntarily recalling magnaman action figures and magtastik and magnetix junior pre-school toys. Magnets in the toy figures, animals and building sets can detach.

If more than one magnet is swallowed the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages which can be fatal.

The toys sold at Wal-Mart, Target and Toys-R-Us and other stores between January 2005 and December 2007.
