Fisher-Price is recalling thousands of the popular toy trains due to a choking hazard.

Over 20,000 popular Fisher-Price toy trains are being recalled due to a choking hazard.

The recalls is for the "Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Troublesome Truck and Crates," as well as the "Thomas & Friends Troublesome Truck & Paint" toys.

As announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the hazard is tied to a small plastic piece containing a high-powered magnet that connects one train to another that can detach or become loose, posing choking and magnet ingestion hazards.

No injuries have been reported.

The company says customers should stop using the toys.

Those who purchased the recalled toys can go to Mattel's website for instructions on how to receive a full refund.
