Target recalls 350,000 woven storage trunks.

Target recalled 350, 000 woven storage trunks yesterday because one severely injured an 18 month old little girl. She suffered brain damage when the lid pinned her neck against the edge of the trunk. A few other children were injured according to reports.

The trunks were sold online and in stores from February 2009 through April 2010. Because these chests weren't considered to be used for children they didn't need to meet safety guidelines like those in place for toy chests.

The CPSC is advising concerned people to return the chest to Target for a refund or exchange. You can read more here.
