Consumer Alert: Target Recalls Children's Belts
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of Target children's belts due to the belt buckles containing excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.
This recall involves two types of belts: Cherokee boys' belts and Circo girls' belts. The Cherokee belts are black and brown reversible belts with heavy stitching in sizes M-XL. The belts came in a pack of two with the numbers 202/08/0018, 202/08/0019 or 202/08/0020 embossed on the belt. The girls' Circo belts are pink and white with heart buckles in sizes XS-L. They 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.
The belts were sold in Target stores and Target.com nationwide from December 2008 through December 2009 for $7 to $9. Consumers should immediately stop using the belts and return them to any Target store for a full refund, or call Target at 800-440-0680.
