Wal-Mart recalls ‘CARS’ children’s shoes
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of
CARS children's shoes due to a choking hazard.
The CARS Fleece Clog Children's Shoes, designed to resemble cars and made for young children, include four decorative wheels that can detach and create a choking hazard, the commission said.
About 91,000 pairs of shoes, imported from China by Wal-Mart of Bentonville, Ark., were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores in the United States and Canada from September 2008 through March 2009 for about $10.
The shoes range from infant sizes to toddler sizes 7 though 11.
Consumers were advised to return the shoes to a Wal-Mart store for a full refund.
