About 129,000 infant bike helmets have been recalled due to a choking hazard. 

The recall involves Pacific Cycle infant bicycle helmets with magnetic no-pinch chin strap buckles—made for infants ranging from one to three years old. 

The recall comes after Pacific Cycle received three reports of the plastic cover of the buckles coming loose. This could pose a risk of choking and magnet ingestion to young children.

No injuries have been reported.

Customers should immediately take the helmets away from children and contact Pacific Cycle for instructions on how to receive a free replacement helmet.

The helmets were sold at Target stores and online at www.target.com from January 2014 through April 2016.
