    A popular slap bracelet sold exclusively at Target has been recalled over a laceration hazard after injuries were reported, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    According to the recall, more than 20,000 bracelets were recalled over concerns that the bracelet’s metal wristband could "pierce the fabric around it, exposing sharp edges and posing a laceration hazard to young children."

    The bracelet was distributed by Fantasia Accessories, and was sold at Target stores nationwide and Target’s website.

    Fantasia Accessories said it has received four reports of the bracelets piercing the fabric cover, resulting in five injuries of "minor cuts consumers' hands or wrists." 

    Parents are advised to immediately stop using the recalled bracelets, and can receive a free replacement product from Fantasia Accessories.
