July 12, 2012: Old Navy Recalls Toddler Girl Aqua Socks
About 47,800 toddler girl socks have been recalled due to slip and fall hazards.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Old Navy, of San Francisco, California, have recalled about 47,800 (about 34,000 in the US and 3,800 in Canada) Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks. This style of Aqua Socks have less traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces such as hardwood or tile, creating a slip and fall hazard. Two customers reported falls with minor injuries that did not require medical attention.
Do You Own It?
The slip-on shoes have pull-on tabs on both the front and back of the foot opening of the shoe. These Aqua Socks were sold in pink and purple in toddler sizes 5 to 11. The recall includes Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks with style number 896452. A small tag inside the foot opening contains the style number (896452), size information and country of origin (China).
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately stop using these shoes 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. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to return the Toddler Girl Aqua Sock by mail.
