Target has issued an official recall for a pair of toddler boots due to a choking hazard. A report from The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission was released on June 11 detailing the rain boots and directing parents to the appropriate resources.
The Commission is recalling the Cat & Jack “Lilia” toddlers’ unicorn rain boots in sizes 5-12. The boots are described as fuchsia with a white unicorn. The unicorn’s head and mane on the back of the boot are fuchsia, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The unicorn’s horn on the front of the boot is faulty, with eleven customers reporting that it detaches, becoming a choking hazard for young children. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported yet.
The affected model numbers are as follows (you can find these numbers on the inside tag of the boot):
093-10-4311 Cat & Jack “Lilia” Rain Boots Size 5
093-10-4312 Cat & Jack “Lilia” Rain Boots Size 6

The boots have been sold in Target stores nationwide, online at Target.com, and on Google Express from January 2019 through April 2019 for around $20.
