Target recalls Halloween LED gel clings due to choking and battery ingestion hazards

LEDGelClings3Target is recalling about 127,000 LED gel clings.

The gel clings can separate and expose the inner decal and LED/button battery, posing choking and button battery ingestion hazards to children.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves six different Halloween-themed LED gel clings that come with two non-replaceable button cell batteries. The gel clings are for window use only and light up with a blinking light when you push on them.


The six different gel cling designs are a green skeleton, pink skeleton, purple spider, black cat, orange pumpkin, and black bat. Model number 234-25-0904 is printed on the gel cling’s packaging.

The gel clings were sold only Target stores nationwide from August 2016 through September 2016 for about $1.

Consumers should immediately remove the recalled gel clings from areas with children and return them to any Target store for a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

For more information, call Target at 800-440-0680 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT Monday through Sunday, go to and click on “School/Stationery/Seasonal” on the product recalls page, or visit the “Product Recalls” tab on Target’s Facebook page.
