Clarks children’s shoes recalled

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of C & J Clark America children's shoes due to a choking hazard.

About 2,000 pairs of shoes were imported from Vietnam by C & J Clark America Inc., doing business as the Clarks Companies N.A. of Newton, Mass., and sold nationwide between February 2009 and July 2009 for about $40 a pair.

The shoes in five models -- Little Kyle Tan Crawler, India Sparkle White Crawler, Kristin Baby Pink Crawler, Hazy Daze White Sandal and Little Kyle Blue Crawler -- include rubber pieces on the sole that can detach and pose a choking hazard, the commission said.

Consumers were advised to take the shoes away from children and return then to a Clarks store for a full refund.

Consumers can call 800-425-2757 for information.
