After Two Fatalities Target Recalls Children’s Blankets

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSA) along with Target Corporation of Minneapolis, Minnesota announced the recall of over 200,000 Pillowfort Weighted Blankets. These blankets were recalled after it was discovered young children could become entrapped by unzipping and entering the banket which could pose the risk of death by asphyxiation. The recalled blanket weights 6 pounds, measure 60 inches by 40 inches and has a removable, waterproof and washable cover and were made in China.

In April 2022 two children from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina became entrapped in the cover of the weighted blanket, and died. The cause of death was asphyxiation. In total Target Corporation has received four reports of issues surrounding these weighted blankets. Target and the CPSA are urging consumers to stop using these blankets immediately and to contact Target for a refund.

Target was the exclusive retailer nationwide and additional recall information can be found at www.target.com. The blankets were sold between December 2018 through September 2022 for $40. Affected consumers may also contact Target directly at 800-440-0680 between the hours of 7am to 10pm CT to receive a prepaid return label to return the blankets or they may return them to any Target store. Target is also contacting all known purchasers directly to arrange a return. The consumer will receive a refund in the form of a credit for use at Target stores.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
