Toysmith of Sumner Wash., is recalling about 58,000 Light-Up Magic Wands sold in the U.S., and Canada.
The battery cover can detach and expose the button-cell batteries, posing choking and ingestion hazards to young children.

The wands, manufactured in China, were sold at Carter’s stores and various toy, grocery, hobby and gift retailers nationwide from June 2018, through October 2019, for about $5.
