In late November, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning concerning Dive Sticks sold by Target . Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately unless otherwise instructed. The recalled dive sticks could remain in an upright position, posing an impalement hazard to young children. 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.
For more information, consumers and industry can 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 www.target.com.
