(Minneapolis, MN) -- Target is recalling more than 200-thousand weighted children's blankets after four kids got trapped -- and two died.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says a four-year-old girl and a six-year-old girl died from asphyxia in North Carolina in April from the Pillowfort product.

Target and the CPSC are urging families to stop using the weighted blankets, and reach out to Target for a refund.
