Target Recalls 365,000 Dive Sticks
Target has recalled about 365,000 Dive Sticks. The dive sticks could remain in an upright position, posing an impalement hazard. CPSC banned pre-weighted dive sticks in 2001.
The recalled dive sticks were sold in a bundle of three in multiple colors: light blue, aqua green, fluorescent yellow, royal blue, and red. The tag accompanying the dive sticks contains: "Dive Toys" or "Diving Game" and has a white small parts warning label in the upper right hand corner. The words "Made in China" are printed in the lower right hand corner. The sticks were sold at Target stores nationwide from April 2008 through August 2008 for about $1.
Consumers should take the recalled dive sticks away from young children immediately and return them to any Target store for a full refund. For additional information, contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at target.com
