Some gloves were found to contain a variety of molds that could cause respiratory or other infections in individuals with chronic health problems, or in individuals who have impaired immune systems.
The recalled items are leather Mizuno baseball and softball gloves.
The gloves have a sewn-in white label on the heel of the glove with the words "Made in Vietnam."
Six models are included.
They were sold at Walmart and Target stores nationwide from April 2010 through May 2011 for between $24 and $60.
Consumers should immediately stop using the gloves and contact Mizuno to receive a full refund.
