Target has issued a recall for a brand of toddler boots because of a possible choking hazard.

The Cat & Jack “Himani” and “Jaren” boots for both boys and girls, sizes 5 through 12, are included in the recall. Both types of boots have been sold in Target stores across the country and on the retailer’s website.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the boots have an elastic lace with a toggle that once tightened, helps to keep snow out. However, the CPSC said that it can break off and become a choking hazard for children.

There have been five reports of the elastic laces breaking and one report of both the elastic laces and toggle breaking, according to the CPSC.

No injuries have been reported.
