Target Recalls Cat & Jack Skinny Jeans After They Cut Kids’ Legs

If you purchased a pair of kids’ skinny jeans from Target last fall, you may want to check your child’s closet. About 30,000 pairs of pants have been recalled after complaints of injuries from metal stars on the jeans.

The recalled pants are Cat & Jack brand Girls’ Star Studded Skinny Jeans. The pants were made by Topson Downs and were exclusively sold at Target stores and from September 2017 through November 2017.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been six reports of the metal stars detaching, including five reports of lacerations.

If you have the jeans involved in the recall, you should have your child stop wearing them and return them to any Target store for a full refund. If you have questions, you can contact Target at 800-440-0680 or click here to visit the recall page on Target’s website.

Cat & Jack has been Target’s in-house clothing line for kids and babies since July 2016. The retail chain recently announced a subscription service that will send a box of Cat & Jack baby clothes to users every month.


Target also lists active recalls on its Facebook page.

The page shows several other recent recalls for items sold in Target stores and at its website, including Kodiak Cakes Blueberry Chia Energy Waffles, which have an allergy alert for undeclared milk.


Other recent recalls include some Whirlpool KitchenAid electric kettles and some ISO Beauty Ionic Pro hair dryers, which the Consumer Product Safety Commission says may pose a burn hazard if the cord becomes brittle near the base.
