Recalls: A stool that collapses, an infant blanket that's a choking hazard

Posted by: Alejandra Matos under Dangerous products Updated: October 29, 2013 - 5:54 PM

Two Minnesota-based companies recalled two children's products Tuesday, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.

Target recalled 69,000 units of a Circo-brand sitting stool after seven reports of the stools breaking or

collapsing and causing a child to fall. In five of the incidents, bumps, bruises and cuts were reported, according to the CPSC.

Minnetonka-based BreathableBaby LLC recalled 15,000 units of their wearable infant blankets, BreathableSack because the zipper pull tabs and sliders can detach, posing a choking hazard.

Only those blankets marked with a manufacture date of 04/17/2012 from Lot No. 124 are being recalled.
