Trumpette Recalls Over 30,000 Pairs Of Socks Due To Choking Hazard
Funny enough, I’ve recently purchased these socks, so it looks like I’ll be contacting Trumpette for a refund. Over 33,000 of their “Aubree’s” and “Hearts” baby socks old in sizes 0 to 12 months have been recalled. The“Aubree’s” socks have flowers attached to the toes. “Hearts” socks have bows attached to the toes of the heart-patterned socks. “TRUMPETTE” is printed on the soles. They were sold in packages of six pairs of socks in multiple colors and have been recalled as the flowers and the bows on the baby socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The firm has received eight reports of the flowers or bows detaching from the socks. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately take the recalled socks away from babies and remove the flowers or bows to eliminate the hazard, or return the socks to the place of purchase or Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
The socks were sold in Buy Buy Baby, Right Start and Trumpette stores nationwide and online at buybuybaby.com, rightstart.com and trumpette.com from December 2012 through February 2013 for about $15.
