MEGA Brands, in cooperation with the U-S Consumer Product Safety Commission, is recalling about 2 point 4 million toys.

The "voluntary" recall announced Monday covers MagnaMan action figures and Magtastik and Magnetix Jr. pre-school toys.
Magnets in the toys can detach, and children could swallow them.
If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal blockages.

So far there have been 44 reports of magnets coming loose from the toys.
