Recall Alert: Golf Cars & Children's Travel Cases

January 3, 2012 Updated Jan 3, 2012 at 6:48 PM EST

(WBNG Binghamton) A suitcase that you'll want to roll right back to the store, and a golf car that's far from par -- those items are in this week's recall alert .

Target is taking 139,000 children's Circo travel suitcases out of its aisles because the surface coating contains excessive levels of lead.

The girls' version has a heart, butterfly and daisy pattern. The boys' version has three jetplanes.

The suitcases were sold across the country and online from last April through August.

Consumers are encouraged to bring the product back for a full refund. Call 1 (800) 440-0680 or visit target.com.

Meanwhile, E-Z-GO is rolling away golf cars, shuttles and off road utility vehicles because of a crash hazard. EZGO says it's gotten 71 reports of the ball joint breaking, and 13 other accounts of it displacing. Thankfully, no injuries yet -- but the company fears it will cause the driver to lose control and crash.

Here's a list of the affected models:

E-Z-GO TXT Fleet Golf Cars / Serial Number: 2748187 thru 2770316

E-Z-GO Freedom TXT Golf Cars / Serial Number: 2748187 thru 2770316
