Minneapolis, MN — Suffocation hazards have prompted a nationwide recall of children’s frog masks by the Target Corporation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC announced the voluntary recall on October 21, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the frog masks lack proper ventilation, and when it is on the child’s face it poses a suffocation hazard.

“This recall involves child-sized frog-themed animal masks. The plush mask is green with yellow and red highlights. There are two eye cutouts and a green elastic band with a fastener used to secure the mask at the back of the child’s head. UPC code 06626491474 is printed on a label attached to the mask,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the recalled product to their local Target store for a full refund.

For more information about the product recall, consumers are advised to contact Target Guest Relations at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or www.target.com.
