Figi's Companies has issued a recall for about 5,000 "Christmas Wishes" tins due to a choking and ingestion hazard.

The music sound chip mechanism in the tins may separate and expose the button batteries. This poses choking and ingestion hazards to children.

The metal tins include a red lid and a white base that is painted with images of a Christmas tree and a winter snow scene. The tins measure nine inches across in diameter. They include a music sound chip in an envelope on the underside of the lid, a chip that contains three button batteries. The products inside the tin have Figi's labels.

The affected tins were sold online at Figis.com and BirchlandMarket.com, as well as through Figi's Companies and Birchland Market mail-order catalogs, from October 2016 until December 2016 for roughly $40.

Although there have been no incidents or injuries reported linked to this recall, consumers are encouraged to immediately remove the affected tins from areas where there are children and to contact Figi's for a full refund.

For more information, consumers can reach Figi's Companies at (800) 437-3817.
