Wal-Mart Shoes in Recall

Wal-Mart Shoes in Recall

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. was the target of two voluntary shoe recalls last week due to safety concerns, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

About 200,000 pairs of a women’s pointed-toe slingback from Wal-Mart’s exclusive George line have been called back. The shoes, manufactured by Joyfair Footwear, of Taipei, Taiwan, pose a falling hazard to consumers as a result of easily detachable heels.

The commission also recalled Buster Brown & Co.’s “Cars”-themed fleece clog children’s shoe, which was deemed a choking hazard due to its four detachable decorative wheels. About 91,000 pairs of the shoes, which were manufactured by Pagoda International Footwear Ltd. of Hong Kong, have been distributed to Wal-Mart in the U.S. and Canada. No injuries have been reported on either product.
