Old Navy stores are recalling toddler girl aqua socks that have been found to have less traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces, like hardwood or tile, creating a possible slip and fall hazard.
The slip-on water shoes have pull on tabs on both the front and back of the foot opening, and were sold in pink and purple in toddler sizes 5 to 11.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “The recall includes Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks with style number 896452.”
Two customers have reported falls with minor injuries that did not require medical attention while wearing the aqua socks.
Consumers should immediately stop using the shoes and return them to any Old Navy store for a full refund.
According to the CPSC, “Consumers who return the shoes before November 9, 2012 will also receive a coupon for $10 off their next purchase at Old Navy. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to return the Toddler Girl Aqua Sock by mail.”
For more information, consumers can contact Old Navy at 866-580-9930 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, Saturday between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m., or e-mail Old Navy at email@example.com.
