There are new reports that say Target is recalling half a million wooden toy cars because they might pose a choking risk to young children. The giant nationwide retailer has issued a statement that said they are doing a voluntary recall for nearly 500,000 Bullseye’s Playground toys after there were several reports that the wheels can detach from the small wooden vehicles. So far there have been no injuries reported.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has urged parents to take the toys away from their kids immediately. The wooden toy vehicles were sold in an eight-pack assortment online and in stores from October to November of last year. They retailed for about $1 each or $8 for the set that came with a caboose, Santa sleigh, ice cream, and food truck, train, police car, fire truck, and taxi and digger. The toys were manufactured by Zhejiang Huangyan Xingbo Crafts Factory in China.
This isn’t the only recall that Target has had to deal with in recent months. Back in January, the company recalled popular lollies after it was reported that they might have had pieces of plastic inside of them. Target issued a statement that said the 40-gram candy canes from ‘The Fabulous Food Company’ were possibly contaminated with the bits and pieces of plastic inside of them. They were sold between the months of September and December of 2018 with an expiration date of August 1, 2019.
In addition, Target also recalled their Eddie Bauer baby carriers for a full refund in October of 2018 as well. The 2,000 baby carriers that were sold by the retailer were recalled because it was found that the buckles can easily break off, which can lead to a child falling. They were sold at Target stores nationwide from December 2017 to August 2018 and retailed for about $70. Luckily, no injuries were reported at the time.
Target is offering a full refund for shoppers who bring the toys back to the store. For parents who have additional questions or concerns about the recalled product, they can contact guest services at any Target store nationwide.
The company has not made any additional statements about the recall.
