Target has recalled 122,500 units of two types of Cat & Jack toddler boots due to risks of choking.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the two types of toddler boots, “Himani” and “Jaren,” have elastic laces with a toggle at the top that can be tightened to keep snow out. However, the laces can break causing the toggle to fall off and become a choking hazard for young kids.

Thus far, while no injuries have been reported, the CSPC has gotten five reports of the elastic laces breaking and one in which both the laces and the toggle at the top broke.

The boots were sold between September 2019 and February 2020. The Himani boots were sold pink and navy in sizes 5 through 12, while the Jaren boots were sold in olive, black with colored polka dots, pink with colored polka dots and navy with rainbows, also in sizes 5 through 12. Any recalled boots that were purchased in a Target store can be returned to any Target store. Customers will get a full refund. Anyone who purchased the boots online should contact Target for a prepaid return label and further steps.

To figure out if your product was recalled, check the product number on the inside of the boot. For a full list of the product numbers, as well as more information about the recall, visit
