The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of approximately 45,000 girls shoes from Keds, a division of Topeka, Kan.-based Collective Brands Inc., on Nov. 16.
According to the agency, ornamental metal stars on the heel of the Keds “Know It All” shoe pose a scratching hazard. The agency said it had received 27 reports of lacerations from loosened stars.
The $23 shoes in sizes 12 to 5 were sold at department stores and though e-tailers from June until October.
Collection Brands declined to comment.
