The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Old Navy today announced a voluntary recall of about 34,000 pairs of Old Navy toddler girl aqua socks because this particular style of swim shoes has low traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces, creating a slip and fall hazard. Two falls with minor injuries were reported.
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 5-11. 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).
The shoes were sold at Old Navy stores and at oldnavy.com from February through June for $12-$15.
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 Nov. 9 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.
