Pacific Cycle announced a recall of 129,000 Schwinn brand infant helmets.

Officials said a plastic cover and magnet on the no-pinch buckle chin straps could become loose.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report the strap as a possible choking hazard for small children.

The helmets were sold exclusively at Target from January 2014 to last month.

No injuries have been reported.

Only helmets with the no-pinch straps are affected.

Consumers can contact Pacific Cycle at  877-564-2261 or Target for a replacement.
