Children’s Giraffe Security Blankets that were sold exclusively at Target Stores have been recalled by Rashti & Rashti Due to a choking hazard. The balls on top of the giraffe’s horns can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The product was on sale at Target from January 2009 through to August 2009 for about $9. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report that about 44,000 units of the product, made in China, are affected. There have been no reported injuries.
The voluntary recall involves the pink “I Love You” security blanket with a giraffe plush head. The blanket measures about 14 inches wide by 14 inches in length. “I Love You” is embroidered on the blanket. Style number Y22230H and “Just One Year a division of Carter’s” are sewn into a label on the blanket.
These security blankets should be taken away from children immediately. Rashti & Rashti can be contacted for a full refund; their telephone number is (888) 594-3730, lines are open between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET Monday yo Friday. The firm’s website address is: www.rashtiandrashti.com
