Nearly 400,000 Frigidaire refrigerators are being recalled due to a choking and laceration hazard stemming from pressing the button that dispenses ice or water from the appliances.
Electrolux announced Thursday that it is recalling about 383,240 of their Frigidaire refrigerators equipped with slim ice buckets due to this risk.
Additionally, approximately 5,785 units sold in Canada are also subject to recall.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, plastic pieces from the ice bucket can break off and fall into the container.
These fragments can then end up in glasses or bowls, posing a risk of choking or causing dangerous cuts to consumers.
