About 168,000 Air Misters were recalled by Target Corp., of Minneapolis, Minn. The Air Mister can shatter during use, posing an injury hazard. Target has received three reports of incidents of misters shattering, including one in which a consumer received lacerations. The recall is for hand-held devices designed to spray a mist for personal cooling. The Air Misters are 8 inches tall and hold 2 ounces of water at the “Fill” line. They are clear plastic cylinders with colored tops and bases. The tops and bases come in black, blue, green and pink. A nylon carrying strap is attached to the tops. Instructions for use are written in white lettering on the outside of the clear plastic cylinder.
The air misters were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from February 2012 to May 2012 for approximately $2.50. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled misters and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
