Children’s Frog Masks Recalled by Target

Posted by admin

Halloween is coming up fast, but if your little one has a frog mask as a costume, you’ll want to check it closely – roughly 3,400 masks are being recalled by Target due to a risk of suffocation.

The frog mask is plush, green with yellow and red markings. It has two cutouts for eyes and fastens with a plush elastic band around the child’s head. It has the UPC code 06626491474 on a label.

The recall is voluntary, and fortunately no incidents of suffocation have been reported. However, because the mask lacks proper ventilation and is quite dense and heavy, the risk for it slipping over a child’s airways and restricting their breathing is possible.

The masks were manufactured in China and were sold at Target stores across the country from August 2011 to September 2011, for roughly $1.

Those who purchased the mask are asked to immediately take it away from their child and bring it back to any Target store for a full refund.

For more information on the recall, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission website or the Target website. You can also contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 7 am and 6pm CT, Monday to Friday.
