Target recalls ottomans over safety hazard to kids

Target is recalling about 7,500 leather pouf ottomans due to safety hazards to young children.

The zippers on the "Room Essentials" ottomans can be opened by children who can then suffocate or choke on the polystyrene beads inside.

The ottomans were sold at Target stores nationwide and online from June through August of this year for about $35.

They should be placed out of the reach of children and can be returned to any Target store for a full refund.

Target can be reached at 800-440-0680 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT or online at Target's website and click on "Recalls" at the bottom of the page, then "Furniture" for more information.
