Meijer recalled certain Falls Creek infant boys' shoes because lace toggles might detach, creating a choking risk to baby boys, said the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.
About 2,300 pairs of the Falls Creek infant boys' brown leather casual shoes with bungee laces and toggles were sold in Meijer stores nationwide from July to September 2010 for about $15. The shoes came in infant sizes 5 to 10 and have Falls Creek imprinted on the soles.
So far, there have been no reports of injuries, CPSC said. Consumers should take the shoes away from children, and can either remove the toggles to get rid of the problem or return the shoes to any Meijer store for a refund. The company is based in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Consumers can call the company at (800) 927-8699 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern, Monday through Friday.
