Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua socks recalled for slip and fall hazard

WASHINGTON D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a voluntary recall of an Old Navy children's product.

Old Navy's Toddler Girl Aqua Socks have been recalled because of a slip and fall hazard. The socks have less traction when worn on wet or smooth surfaces, according to CPSC.

Two customers have reported falls with minor injuries that did not require medical attention.

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 to 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).

About 34,000 units were sold in the U.S. and an additional 3,800 were sold in Canada between February and June 2012. The shoes sold for between $12 and $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, 2012 will also receive a coupon for $10 off their next purchase at Old Navy.
