Recall Description: Target Cat & Jack Chiara Unicorn Ankle Fashion Boots
The current recall involves the unicorn style boots in sizes 5 to 13 and size 1. The boots are lined with white faux fur, have a white zipper and are unicorn-themed. Look for a silver glitter horn and similarly sparkly inner ears. The boots also have pink, purple and blue faux fur beneath the unicorn’s horn and multi-hued stripes on the back.
Why the Boots Were Recalled
The CPSC issued the recall following four separate reports of the unicorn’s horn detaching. While there are no known injuries as of now, the detached horn presents a potential choking hazard.
