WASHINGTON – Target Corp. is voluntarily recalling 3,400 frog masks for children because of a potential risk of suffocation.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Target said Friday the plush masks lack proper ventilation when secured across a child’s face. No injuries have been reported.
Target is urging people who bought the child-sized masks to stop using them. They are green with yellow and red highlights, two eye cutouts and a green elastic band with a fastener that secures the mask at the back of the child’s head.
The masks were sold at Target from August through September for about $1. Their UPC code is 06626491474.
Consumers should return the masks to any Target store for a full refund.
