Target Recalls Dive Sticks

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target announced a voluntary recall of Dive Sticks for posing an impalement hazard to young children. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

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. These items were sold exclusively 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
