Old Navy just recalled its Toddler Girl Aqua Socks, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) have announced.
About 34,000 Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks are being recalled in the United States and another 3,800 have been recalled in Canada.
The defective Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks were manufactured in China; sold by Old Navy, of San Francisco, California; and sold at Old Navy stores in the U.S. and Canada, at oldnavy.com in the U.S., and at oldnavy.ca in Canada. The recalled Toddler Girl Aqua Socks were sold from February 2012 through June 2012 for between $12 and $15.
This style of Aqua Socks, which is, essentially, a slip-on shoe, has less traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces, including hardwood or tile, creating a slip and fall hazard. Two date, two customers reported falls with minor injuries that did not require medical attention.
The slip-on shoes are constructed with pull-on tabs on both the front and back of the foot opening of the shoe. These Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks were sold in pink and purple in Toddler sizes 5-11 and are in style number 896452. A small tag inside the foot opening of the shoe contains the style number (89642), size information, and country of origin (China).
The firm advises consumers to immediately stop using the recalled Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks and return them to any Old Navy store for a full refund. Consumers who return the shoes before November 9, 2012 will also receive a coupon for $10 off their next purchase at Old Navy.
