Target Corp., of Minneapolis, Minn., is recalling 122,500 pair of Cat & Jack “Himani” and “Jaren” Toddler Boots.
The toggle on the boot can detach from the elastic lace, posing a choking hazard to children.
The firm has received five reports of the elastic laces breaking and one report of both the elastic laces and toggle breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall includes the Cat & Jack “Himani” and “Jaren” toddlers’ boots in sizes 5 – 12 with an elastic lace with a toggle at the top that can be tightened to keep out snow.
The “Himani” boots were sold in navy and pink and the “Jaren” boots were sold in olive, black with multi-colored polka dots, pink with multi-colored polka dots, and navy with rainbows.
The product’s item number, which can be found here, is printed inside the boot shaft.
The boots, manufactured in China, were sold at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com and Google Express from September 2019, through February 2020, for about $30.
