The Army and Air Force Exchange Service announced it sold four of the Polly Pocket Magnetic Playsets now being recalled by Mattel Inc.

Mattel is voluntarily recalling about 2.4 million of the playsets because the magnets can separate from the toy and could pose a choking hazard. Three children have been taken to the hospital with serious injuries after swallowing the magnets.
