Target Corporation is recalling storage step stools for the second time this month after receiving over 27 reports of the stools breaking or collapsing. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), 14 of these incidents involved children. Several adults have suffered broken wrists, arms, as well as a fractured hip and pelvis, when the wooden step stool they were on broke apart under their weight. Target initially recalled 206,000 stools on August 4, but has since voluntarily recalled 341,000 more because of the danger. These wooden stools were sold under the "Circo" and "Do Your Room" brand names and were sold both at Target stores and online at Target.com from 2007 to 2010. Target said that people should stop using the stools immediately and return them to their nearest Target store for a full refund.

Target has also announced the recall of about 165,000 Scoot 'n Zoom Radio riding toys, model number 711 made by Radio Flyer. The recalled toys can tip over, causing a child to fall forward while riding, posing a fall hazard to young children. So far there have been over ten reported incidents of injuries, including broken teeth and chin lacerations that required stitches. The toys were sold from August 2010 through August 2011.
