Target is recalling more than 200,000 weighted blankets sold nationwide after two girls suffocated to death earlier this year, according to a release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Two girls, ages 4 and 6, became entrapped in the cover of the Pillowfort blanket and died of asphyxia at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, the release said. Target has received four reports of children getting trapped after unzipping and entering the blanket, including the two deaths.

The blankets were sold for $40 in stores and online from December 2018 through September 2022. They weigh 6 pounds, measure 60 inches long by 40 inches wide and have a removable, waterproof, washable cover, according to the CPSC. People should stop using the blankets immediately and contact Target for a refund.

The blankets came in eight prints or colors:
