30,000 Pairs of Target Jeans Have Been Recalled for Causing Skin Lacerations

2 minute read

A pair of $18 girls’ jeans sold at Target are being recalled for causing skin lacerations and cuts to wearers.

The “Cat & Jack” brand jeans, which are manufactured by Topson Downs and exclusively sold at Target, are embellished with small gold stars on the bottoms of both legs. Consumers have reported that the decorative metal stars are coming loose and cutting people wearing the denim pants.

Known as the “Cat & Jack Girls’ Star Studded Skinny Jeans,” the jeans are a girls’ clothing item sold at Target in sizes 4 — 18P, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which issued the recall advisory on March 7. Topson Downs voluntarily issued the Target jeans recall after receiving five complaints about cuts from the metal star appliqués, according to the advisory.

To find out if you have a pair of the Cat & Jack jeans, check the waistband — if they are the recalled jeans, the waistband should read both “Cat & Jack” and “Super Skinny.” The CPSC recommends consumers stop wearing the jeans immediately and return them to Target, where you will receive a full refund.
