Check your girls’ swimming shoes! Old Navy, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have recalled 37,800 of their Toddler Girl Aqua Socks yesterday as this particular style has less traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces such as hardwood or tile and can create a slip and fall hazard. Two customers have already reported falls with minor injuries.
The slip-on shoes have pull-on tabs on both the front and back of the foot opening of the shoe. These Aqua Socks were sold in pink and purple in Toddler sizes 5-11. The recall includes Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks with style number 896452. A small tag inside the foot opening contains the style number (896452), size information and country of origin (China).
The socks were sold in Old Navy stores in the U.S. and Canada and at oldnavy.com in the U.S. and at oldnavy.ca in Canada from February 2012 through June 2012. The shoes sold for between $12 and $15.
Consumers should immediately stop using these shoes and return them to any Old Navy store for a full refund. If you return the shoes before November 9, 2012, you will also receive a coupon for $10 off their next purchase at Old Navy. Contact email@example.com if you wish to return the Toddler Girl Aqua Sock by mail.
