PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Target is recalling more than 200,000 weighted blankets for children.

The Pillowfort weighted blanket has been reported to easily trap children inside if they unzip the removable cover.

Target sold the recalled blanket from December, 2018, to September, 2022.

A four-year-old and a six-year-old reportedly died in April, 2022 after they became trapped in the blanket.

Four reports have been filed about this product, including the two deaths.

Customers who have purchased these blankets should contact Target at 800-440-0680 for a prepaid return label, or return them at any Target location for a refund.
