News outlets have reported that over 45,000 Keds sneakers for girls must be recalled due to laceration hazard. The shoes, according to the brand responsible for its manufacturing Collective Brands of Topeka, Kan., have ornamental starts on their heels that can come undone or be loosen. Those ornaments may pose a laceration hazard to young girls.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that the Keds shoes for young girls called “Know It All” were responsible for over 25 reports of injuries after the ornament stars loosened from the product. This staggering number served as an alert, forcing the company to do something about the risky item.
Keds for girls “Know it All” were distributed to several department stores. Many online retailers were also responsible for some of this product’s sales. The recalled items have rubber soles, “KEDS” is printed on the shoe’s tongue and heel, they are all pink, black and have a pink loop on the heel and white trim. The code of the recalled items is KY40098A.
As a Los Angeles product liability lawyer I urge all consumers to make sure their daughters are not wearing this recalled item. Contact the manufacturer so you know how to proceed to get a full refund after returning the shoes.
Personal injury lawyers should be always available to guide you through any case related to injuries inflicted upon you by the negligence of others. Don’t hesitate to contact them if you ever find the need to be represented.
