Target Recalls Infant Girls Sandals Due To Choking HazardPosted in Product Liability Keith Belt
Are there dangerous and defective products in your home, which represent a potential fatal hazard to young children? One of the best ways to find out is by keeping updated on U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls, Alabama product liability attorney Keith T. Belt says
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled Circo Aloma Infant Girls Sandals immediately unless otherwise instructed. About 51,700 of these sandals, manufactured in China, were sold in their stores under the style name “Aloma” in infant girls’ sizes 2 through 5. The decorative white plastic flowers attached to the toes and sides can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children and to-date the company has received eight reports of this occurring, but no injuries have resulted.
The sandals, which were sold nationwide from January 2011 to May 2011 for about $10, had “Circo” printed on the inside and bottom of the shoe. Parents should check immediately to ensure their children are not needless put at risk and/or in danger. If you have purchased these sandals, immediately stop using them and return the product to any Target store to receive a full refund.
