Target has recalled approximately 139,000 17′ Circo Children’s Travel Cases. The Target Corporation, of Minneapolis, Minn., has recalled the travel cases due to the excessive levels of lead contained in the surface coating. The lead coating contained in the travel cases violates the federal lead paint standard.
The version designed for girls is pictured with a pink and blue/teal design, while the boys version comes in blue and red. The girl travel bags have a butterfly attached to the zipper, while the boys have an airplane attached to their zipper. The travel bags were sold for $21.00 each.
The travel cases subject to recall were exclusively sold at Target.com and Target stores across the United States from April of 2011 through August of 2011. In order to determine the date codes of the travel cases, you can check the round Circo tag hanging underneath the UPC bar code or on the white tag inside the main compartment.
Anyone using these bags should stop immediately and return to any Target store to request a refund. Target can be reached at (800) 440-0680 during the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Central Standard Time Monday through Friday. For additional information regarding the recall, visit www.target.com
