Target Recalling Children's Belts Over Lead Paint
June 23, 2010

Target is recalling about 105,000 Children's' belts under an agreement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The voluntary recall is a result of excessive levels of lead in the buckles, violating the federal lead-paint standard, according to a joint release.

The belts--for boys and girls--were manufactured in China and sold through Target stores nationwide from December 2008 through December 2009 for $7-$9

No injuries have been reported, but the CPSC and the retailer urge consumers to stop using the belts immediately and return them to a Target store for a full refund.

This belts involved are:

  • Boys' Cherokee belts—black and brown reversible belts with heavy stitching in sizes M-XL sold  in two-pack with the numbers 202/08/0018, 202/08/0019 or 202/08/0020 embossed on the belt.
  • Girls’ Circo belts—pink and white with heart buckles in sizes XS-L were sold in a 2-pack with the numbers 202/05/0071, 202/05/0072, 202/05/0073 or 202/05/0074 listed on the product label attached to the inside of the belt.
Fort more information, see the recall notice.

In the past two weeks, the CPSC has announced three other recall cases, involving major companies.

Women are different than men—we just are. You know, sugar, spice, everything nice, all that stuff. We think differently. We process information differently. We love sappy chick flicks, which is why men must suffer through so many of them (and we are sorry about this, kind of). One of the biggest differences, if your promotional campaigns haven't picked up on it yet, is that our bodies are completely different than a man's.
