Recalled Target Plush Frog MaskTarget and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a voluntary recall of Children’s Frog Masks due to the risk of suffocation posed by the item.

There are two eye cut-outs and a green elastic band with a fastener used to secure the mask at the back of the child’s head. The product’s UPC code 06626491474 is printed on a label attached to the mask.

Target exclusively sold this product in their stores from August 2011 through to September 2011 for about $1.
