Electrolux is recalling roughly 370,000 refrigerators over potential choking hazards.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the company has received 185 reports of pieces breaking in the ice makers, which can then fall into the ice bucket and into a glass. One of the people who complained reported gum lacerations.

The 13 models include the Frigidaire and Elextrolux side-by-side, top freezer and multi-door refrigerators. Consumers who own one of the recalled models are urged to stop using the refrigerator, empty the ice bucket and contact Electrolux to schedule a technician.

The company said about 367,500 recalled models were sold in the U.S. and an additional 7,180 were sold in Canada. They were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot and appliance stores nationwide between April 2020 and March 2022. Prices ranged from $1,200 to $4,300.
