How to Make a Claim for a Target Recall Item on Your Own
The health and safety of you and your family are at risk when consuming or using recalled products, so it is important to be proactive with product recalls. Sometimes recalls are large-scale recalls by a manufacturer, and sometimes they are company or store-specific.
Verify Your Item Has Been Recalled
There are a few ways you can verify if your products are involved in recalls.
|Notification from Target||If you made a purchase on Target.com or used a REDcard in stores, Target will attempt to contact you regarding recalls.|
|Notification from manufacturer||If you registered your product, you may receive a notification from the manufacturer, providing your contact information is still valid.|
|Online||You can check the on their website by doing the following:
|Go to Target's Facebook page. Choose the "More" tab, and choose Product Recalls.|
|In-Store||Find the iPads at Target's Guest Services or Help Centers and search for recalls.|
File a Claim for a Refund, Repair, or Replacement
Depending on the type of recall, your options can vary. Some manufacturers or stores will instruct you to discard affected products, and some will ask or allow you to return them. You may be offered a refund, repair, or replacement, depending on the type of product and the scope of the recall.
If you have a manufacturer-issued recall, you should direct your questions to them. However, you can contact Target for additional questions, particularly if it is a Target-specific recall.
