Target Teething Toy Recall Issued Due to Choking Hazard

Roughly 191,000 infant teething toys sold exclusively at Target stores have been recalled by federal safety officials, following reports that suggest children may choke or gag on the tail of the monkey-shaped toy.

The Target teething toy recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 20, after reports were received from at least seven consumers involving infants choking or gagging on the toy.

Although no serious injuries have been reported to date, officials indicate that the monkey teething toy poses a potential suffocation hazard.
