If the window clings come apart, they can pose a choking hazard.

Bad news if you bought your Halloween decorations at Target this year: The Bullseye is recalling more than 120,000 LED window clings, because it turns out they pose a choking hazard. Boo! (Pun intended)

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall was issued because the clings can come apart and expose the inner decal and LED/button battery compartment. And if a child were to find that button and try to swallow it, there's a chance they could choke (though no such injuries have been reported to date.)

Still, if you've got some of these bad boys in the house, here's what to look for:

The recall involves six different Halloween-themed LED gel clings that come with two non-replaceable button cell batteries—green skeleton, pink skeleton, purple spider, black cat, orange pumpkin, and black bat. The clings are for window use only and light up with a blinking light when you push on them. Model number 234-25-0904 is printed on the packaging.

The clings were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from August 2016 through September 2016 for about $1. If you find one of the affected products, The CDC suggests you remove it immediately from any area with children, and either toss it ASAP or return it to any Target store for a full refund, so you can enjoy a happy—and safe!—Halloween.

For more information, contact Target at 800-440-0680 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT Monday through Sunday.
