The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of multiple models of Frigidaire and Electrolux refrigerators on Thursday.

The recall of 13 models of Frigidaire and one model of Electrolux side-by-side, top freezer and multi-door refrigerators was issued due to the ice level detector arm in the ice maker posing a choking hazard.

The company received 185 reports of the ice maker in these fridges breaking into pieces and falling into the ice maker.

About 367,500 units sold in the U.S. and 7,180 sold in Canada have been recalled. Government officials recommend consumers immediately stop using the ice makers associated with these models, empty the ice bucket and contact a technician to replace the ice maker for free.
