URGENT RECALL: Target pulls dangerous Halloween toy from shelves

Parents are being warned about a recall involving a popular children’s Halloween toy sold at Target stores nationwide.

The LED Pumpkin Spinning Wand has been pulled from sale because “the battery compartment cover may be opened, exposing the button batteries inside.”

Target says that if young children gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they “may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death.


“In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children. ”

The recalled toys were sold between September and October this year.

People have been warned to stop using the product and return it to a Target or Target Country store as soon as possible for a full refund.
