Target Corporation, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has recalled around 127,000 Halloween LED gel clings because the gel clings can separate and expose the inner decal and LED/button battery compartment, posing choking and button battery ingestion hazards to children (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 17-020, October 20, 2016).
Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Product description. This recall involves six different Halloween-themed LED gel clings that come with two non-replaceable button cell batteries. The gel clings are for window use only and light up with a blinking light when you push on them. The six different gel cling designs are a green skeleton, pink skeleton, purple spider, black cat, orange pumpkin, and black bat. Model number 234-25-0904 is printed on the gel cling’s packaging.
These LED gel clings, which were manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from August 2016 through September 2016 for about $1.
Remedy. Consumers should remove the recalled gel clings from areas with children immediately and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
