A choking hazard has prompted the recall of thousands of plush toys sold at specialty toy and gift stores nationwide.

This recall involves about 25,000 Douglas plush toys in three models, Oliver the Bear, Chewie the English Bulldog, and Charlotte the Fox.

Douglas has received two reports of the plastic eyes on the toys detaching or loosening, but no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately take the toys away from young children and can contact the company to receive a free replacement product or a full refund.

The toys were sold between July 2014 and April 2017 for about $20 and were also distributed by UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation to various individuals and organizations.

Consumers can contact Douglas at 800-276-4029 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or on the company's website.
