CONSUMER CATCH-UP: Target recalls rain boots for choking hazard, Uber testing food delivery by drone

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Target recalls children rain boots for choking hazard

Target is recalling 29,000 children's rain boots because of a potential choking hazard. The Cat & Jack brand "Lilia" rain boots run in children's sizes 5 to 12 and are made to look like white unicorns. The unicorn horn can detach and pose a choking hazard to young children.

The boots were sold at Targets nationwide as well as on Target.com and Google Express. Consumers who purchased the boots should immediately remove them from the reach of children and return them to Target for a full refund.

Consumers can visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission or Target at their Facebook page for more information.

Uber testing food delivery by drone

Uber announced plans to begin testing the use of drones to deliver food ordered through Uber Eats.

The tests will begin this summer in San Diego, pending Federal Aviation Administration approval. Uber Eats drones will deliver McDonald's during these test runs, and plans to expand to other restaurant partners later this year.

The drones won't fly food directly to a customer's door - instead, the drones will land in designated safe zones, where an Uber employee will pick it up and courier it the rest of the way. Uber hopes that within a decade, the drones will be able to land on the roofs of Uber vehicles located near their destinations.

"We don't need to get the drone direct to our customers or consumers. We just have to get it close enough," said Luke Fischer, head of flight operations at Uber Elevate.
