Minneapolis, Target Corp. announced Tuesday that it has committed to systematically reduce its use of polyvinyl chloride plastic (PVC).

The company is reducing PVC found in many of its products including infant products, children's toys, shower curtains, packaging and fashion accessories. PVC products commonly contain toxic additives such as lead and phthalates and are often made in China.
