Christmas recall: Target removes product over choking fears

Christmas recall: Target removes product over choking fears

Target has recalled a popular children’s toy following concerns it may be a choking hazard to young children.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is advising anyone who has purchased the Young Ones My First Sand and Water table to return it immediately.

The toy was sold at Target and Target Country stores around the country between April 1, 2014 and November 29, 2018.

The recall was issued because a small part on the watering nozzle is able to detach from the spout and could be a choking hazard to young children.

The toy can be returned to Target for a full refund.

Target’s notice explained: “We recommend you stop using the product and return the product to a Target or Target Country store as soon as possible, where our team members will provide you with a full refund. A receipt is not required to obtain a refund.”

For further information, customers can contact the Customer Support Centre on 1300 753 567 or visit https://www.target.com.au/help/contact-us.
