Target Recalls Hand-Held Air Misters

A recent recall is warning Target customers about a hand-held air mister that can cause physical harm.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target Corp., announced Thursday a voluntary recall of about 168,000 Air Misters, hand-held devices designed to spray a mist for personal cooling.

Officials said the Air Mister can shatter during use, posing an injury hazard. Target has received three reports of incidents of misters shattering. In one case a consumer's skin was torn open from the shattering product.

The Air Misters are 8 inches tall and hold 2 ounces of water at the "Fill" line. They are clear plastic cylinders with colored tops and bases. The tops and bases come in black, blue, green and pink. A nylon carrying strap is attached to the tops. They were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from February 2012 to May 2012 for approximately $2.50.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled misters and return them to any Target store for a full refund.

You can contact Target Guest Relations, at (800) 440-0680 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or online.

It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
