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