Circo camping pack kits recalled

Washington -- A U.S. watchdog agency advised consumers to return Circo Children's Camping Combo Packs to Target stores due to a potential fire hazard.

About 1,500 camping packs were imported from Bangladesh by Target Corp. of Minneapolis and sold nationwide from September 2010 through October 2010 for about $25.

The floor of the tent included in the camping packs -- a kit that includes a tent, sleeping back, backpack and headlamp -- failed a flammability test, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The tents are green and dark blue with planets, stars and other figures printed on them.

The commission said Target would provide a full refund or store credit.
