Target recalled thousands of Santa mailboxes after multiple incidents were reported of people needing medical attention due to cuts from the mail slot.
The retail giant recalled its red and white Bullseye's Playground Metal Mailbox over reports of people receiving lacerations from the product, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The mailboxes were recalled due to the mail slot posing a hazard risk.
A spokeswoman from Target told the Washington Examiner that the company is "committed to providing high-quality and safe products," and as a result, it has "voluntarily recalled" the mailbox.

Roughly 174,300 of the Santa mailboxes, which contained the words "Letters To Santa" on the front, were recalled after Target received knowledge that nine of the mailboxes contained sharp mail slot openings, according to the announcement.
Target also received notification of seven incidents in which people received lacerations from the sharp slot opening, with three people requiring medical attention as a result.
"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mailbox and return it to any Target Store for a full refund in the form of a Target gift card," the notice read. "Consumers can also contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the mailbox for a full refund in the form of a Target gift card."
