Disney and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) issued a voluntary recall on all 80,000 Forky plush toys currently on the market due to it being a choking hazard. Apparently, the small googly eyes on the toy can detach from the doll, posing a choking risk. No injuries have been reported to date.
Forky is one of the new characters in Disney’s Toy Story 4, which was released in June in theaters nationwide. Forky is a DIY toy made from a fork, pipe cleaner, and googly eyes. Because of its simplicity, many Toy Story fans recreated the character at home.
Disney is giving a full refund to anyone who purchased a Forky plush doll. They can be returned to any Disney Store, Walt Disney World retail store or Disneyland Resort theme park retail store.
Recalled Forky toys have one of these tracking numbers, which can be found at the bottom of the toy: FAC-024868-18338; FAC-024868-19032; FAC-024868-19060; and FAC-024868-1909.
The toy was sold at Disney Stores nationwide, Disney Theme Parks, shopdisney.com and on Amazon’s Disney store between April and June 2019.

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
