The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall for Target’s Cat & Jack Lilia Rain Boots. Part of the boot can detach, posing a choking hazard. A representative from Target said, in an e-mailed statement, “Target is committed to providing high quality and safe products to our guests. Target voluntarily recalled its Cat & Jack “Lilia” Rain Boots due to potential safety concerns identified in the CPSC press release. No injuries have been reported, but if a guest owns an item that has been recalled, they should return the product for a full refund.”
If your child has these boots, read on for more information about the recall.

The recall includes the Lilia style of rain boots in toddler sizes 5-12. The unicorn-shaped boots are fuchsia at the top. The unicorn portion of the boot is white with a fuchsia, orange, yellow, green and blue horn and mane.
