Recall Alert: Target’s “Letters to Santa” Mailbox Can Cause Lacerations

We’re big fans of Target’s holiday décor, but one item is under recall as a safety hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Target is recalling the Bullseye’s Playground Metal Mailbox because the mail slot is sharp enough to cause lacerations.

The box features the words “Letters to Santa” and comes in either red or white. You could buy the product for $5 for a single mailbox or $10 for a set of two. Target has received reports of seven incidents of lacerations, including three that required medical attention.

About 174,300 mailboxes are affected in this recall, sold between October and November of this year. If you bought one, stop using it and return it to Target for a refund. If you don’t live close enough to a store, you can contact the company to receive a prepaid return label and receive a full refund as a Target gift card.
