Fantasia Accessories Recalls Slap Bracelets Due to Reports of Lacerations
they were sold exclusively at Target for about $5
Fantasia Accessories and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced the recall of about 22,500 slap bracelets sold exclusively at Target. The slap bracelet's metal wristband can pierce the protective fabric around it and expose sharp edges, posing a laceration hazard to young children.
What's the problem?
This recall involves children's furry critter plush slap bracelets in panda, unicorn and heart designs. The recalled bracelets are made of a metal band covered with a protective fabric. Only slap on bracelets are included in this recall. They were sold at Target stores nationwide and online in July 2018 for about $5.
Fantasia Accessories has received four reports of the bracelets piercing the fabric cover, resulting in five injuries of minor cuts to consumers' hands or wrists.
What happens next?
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bracelets, take them away from young children and contact Fantasia Accessories at (800) 624-4826 to receive a free replacement product. The number for this recall is 19-026.
