Dollarama has recalled their Wooden Easy-Grab Puzzles because of a potential choking hazard. The three-piece puzzles have wooden knobs, which may separate from the puzzle pieces and could cause a child to choke.

The products involved in the recall can be identified by item #08-3032698 and UPC 6 67888 17495 9. Approximately 23,952 of the recalled puzzles were sold in Dollarama stores across Canada, between June 2015 to January 2016. Puzzle pieces with a metallic peg on the underside are not included in this recall.
