Target recalling toddler boots due to choking hazard

Posted at 8:20 AM, Nov 05, 2020

Target announced Wednesday a recall of its Cat & Jack “Himani” and “Jaren” toddler boots due to a choking hazard.

The toggle on the boot can detach from the elastic lace, posing a choking hazard to children, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The elastic lace with the toggle at the top can be tightened to keep out snow.

The firm has received five reports of the elastic laces breaking and one report of both the elastic laces and toggle breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The toddler boots were sold at Target stores nationwide and online at and Google Express from September 2019 through February 2020 for about $30.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled boots away from children and return them to any Target Store for a full refund. If consumers purchased the boots on, they can contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the boots.
