Target Recalls Step Stools Due to Fall Hazard

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Target have announced a recall of over 200,000 wooden step stools.  The stools are made of wooden and have two steps with storage under one of the steps.  The recalled stools are called “Circo” and “The Do Your Room.”  The stools have been reported to break and collapse when people stand on it.

Target has received 26 reports of the stools breaking or collapsing. Fourteen of the victims were children, seven were adults, and five incidents were reported where the user’s age was unknown. Two adults fractured their wrists, and of those victims, one also fractured her hip and pelvis. Additionally, six children and one adult suffered scrapes and bruising.

If you have one of these step stools, stop using it right away and return it to any Target store for a full refund.  For more information about the recall, you can see the recall notice here.
