Melville Corporation Recalls Children's Sandals

PRODUCT: "Islander" children's sandals by Melville Corporation. The sandals have balloons fastened to the vamp of the sandals.

PROBLEM: The balloons may come off, presenting a choking hazard to children.

WHAT TO DO: Consumers should return the sandals to the place of purchase for a full refund.

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Melville Corporation of Rye, NY, announces the voluntary recall of its "Islander" children's sandals. The sandals can be easily identified by the balloons that are fastened to the vamp of the sandals.

The balloons on the sandals may come off. Because the sandals are intended for use by young children, the balloons, if detached, present a choking hazard. To date, the CPSC and Melville are aware of two incidents involving the sandals. Neither involved an injury.

These shoes were sold throughout the United States in Kmart department stores and Pay Less Drugs stores between February and September of 1992. The sandals sold for $3.99 a pair. Consumers who purchased the sandals are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing this recall as part of it mission to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with consumer products. The Commission's mission is to reduce the estimated 28.5 million injuries and 21,600 deaths associated each year with the 15,000 different types of consumer products under the CPSC's jurisdiction.
