A line of craft kits that resemble a turkey were recalled because the magnets involved in the assembly pose a serious internal injury risk if they are ingested. Other recalls this week included pajamas that fail to meet flammability standards.

Here's a more detailed look at the products:

CRAFT KITS

DETAILS: Foam Pumpkin Turkey Craft Kits imported by Jo-Ann Stores Inc. and made by Ningbo Golden Time Gifts and Crafts of China. They were sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide from August to October 2012. When assembled, it resembles a turkey with a pumpkin-shaped body.

WHY: 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.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 1,800.
