The U.S. government on Tuesday announced a recall of 44,000 pink baby blankets, saying the giraffe decorations on the blankets pose a choking hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said importer Rashti & Rashti is recalling the giraffe blankets, which were made in China and sold at Target stores between January and August of 2009. The agency said that pieces of the giraffe's horns can fall off. No injuries have been reported.

The commission said consumers should call Rashti & Rashti for a refund. The 14-inch-by-14-inch blankets were sold for about $9 each.
