The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Trumpette, today announced a voluntary recall of Trumpette’s “Aubree’s” and “Hearts” baby socks. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
What’s the Deal?
This recall involves “Aubree’s” and “Hearts” baby socks sold in sizes 0 to 12 months. “Aubree’s” socks have flowers attached to the toes. “Hearts” socks have bows attached to the toes of the heart-patterned socks. “TRUMPETTE” is printed on the soles. They were sold in packages of six pairs of socks in multiple colors. The flowers and the bows on the baby socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The firm has received eight reports of the flowers or bows detaching from the socks. No injuries have been reported. The recall includes about 33,000 pairs.
Do You Own It?
The socks were sold at Buy Buy Baby, Right Start and Trumpette stores nationwide and online at buybuybaby.com, rightstart.com, and trumpette.com from December 2012 through February 2013 for about $15.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately take the recalled socks away from babies and remove the flowers or bows to eliminate the hazard, or return the socks to the place of purchase or Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
