According to a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), KEDS girls’ shoes are being recalled due to a laceration hazard.
The recall affects KEDS “Know It All” girls’ shoes. These shoes have rubber soles and are black and pink. They have a pink loop on the heel and white trim. You can find the word “KEDS” on the heel and tongue of the shoe.
These shoes were sold at various department stores and online between June and Oct. 2011 for around $23.
The hazard in these shoes is with the ornamental stars on the heel. They can come loose, leading to a laceration. So far there have been 27 reports of scratches and cuts from the stars.
Consumers are advised to not allow children to wear the shoes any longer. They can contact the distributor, Collective Brands Inc., of Topeka, Kansas, or Stride Rite stores in order to receive a $30 gift card.
With holiday shopping already underway for many consumers, children’s products are a hot item. However, being aware of potential hazards is important before deciding to pick out that perfect gift.
