Pink giraffe ‘security’ blankets sold at Target Stores nationwide have been recalled due to a possible choking hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Rashti and Rashti of New York, announced a voluntary recall of about 44,000 of the pink giraffe blankets because the balls on top of the giraffe’s horns can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
No injuries have been reported. The blankets were sold exclusively at Target stores from January 2009 through August 2009 for about $9. They were manufactured in China.
The 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.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled blankets away from children and contact Rashti and Rashti toll-free at (888) 594-3730 between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for a full refund, or visit the firm's website at www.rashtiandrashti.com
