Target locations throughout New Jersey, as well as nationwide, have announced a product recall of a toy sold online and at their retail locations. The recall is over a quality issue that may cause a choking hazard for young children.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the "recall involves Hearth & Hand with Magnolia 13-Piece Toy Mushroom Peg Sorter" children's toy. "The playset includes a board with mushrooms decorated in a dotted pattern in multiple colors."

Affected units were sold at Target, including stores throughout The Garden State. The recall was issued on November 16, 2023, with about 1,850 units in total being affected.

The timing of the recall is especially important since it's right at the beginning of the big holiday shopping season.

The quality issue is with the mushroom pegs that come with the toy. The bottom or stem of the mushroom may unexpectedly detach from the top of the peg piece.

Since the stems of the pegs are small, children may consume them by mistake. If consumed, it can cause a choking hazard which may result in emergency medical attention.

So far, there have been up to five reports regarding stem pieces detaching from the mushrooms. As of now, no serious medical issues or injuries have occurred as a result.

Units were sold at Target locations and between the dates of July 2023 to September 2023. The retail price averaged $19.99 but may have varied from store to store.

Anyone who purchased Hearth & Hand with Magnolia 13-piece Toy Mushroom Peg Sorter from Target stores in New Jersey or around the nation should take the toy away from children immediately.
