Well, it’s official, folks. Forky is trash. Disney Parks has officially issued a voluntary recall on the popular 11″ plush that was released leading up to the premiere of Toy Story 4 due to a manufacturing defect and potential choking hazard.
We are voluntarily recalling the 11” Forky plush due to a manufacturing defect. Nothing is more important than the safety of our guests; please call 866-537-7649 or return the item to any North America Disney/Disney Parks store for a full refund.

We reported on the sudden disappearance of the plush from store shelves across Walt Disney World back in June after merchandise Cast Members at retail locations across the resort were instructed to pull any remaining Forky plushes from shelves and displays.
The plush, while adorable and incredibly close to Forky’s design in the film, poses a choking hazard by way of the googly eyes, which have reportedly fallen off on multiple plush, as well as the poseable wire arms, which also come off.
Disney Parks asks that any guests who purchased the plush call 866-537-7649 or return the item to any North America Disney/Disney Parks store for a full refund.
