The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)  and Celebrate Express Inc., of Kirkland Washington, have announced the recall of about 21,100 Mystery Drawer and Dice Tunnel Magic Party Favors and 25,500 Costume Shields because the magic party favors and the dragon ornament on the shield could break or crack, exposing sharp points that could cut or lacerate children.

No injuries or incidents have been reported to date.

The recalled Mystery Drawer is a black plastic rectangular box with a movable drawer. The Dice Tunnel is a blue or red plastic rectangular box with one die. They were sold along with other party favors in an assortment known as the Magic Favor Box (Item #E4696).
