(Austin, TX) -- Yeti is recalling nearly two-million coolers and gear cases because of magnets that can become detached from the items.

The recall includes the Sidekick dry gear case, the M20 soft backpack cooler, and the M30 soft cooler, versions 1.0 and 2.0.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says closures on the recalled products can fail, resulting in detached magnets.

The magnets can create a risk of injury or death if swallowed.
