33,000 pairs of children’s socks are being recalled because of the potential choking threat that they could pose to wearers. The Sacramento, California-based Trumpette issued the recall, which pertains to Hearts and Aubree’s baby socks in sizes all the way up to one year of age. The socks, which came in six-packs, have bows or flowers that can come off. A young child might attempt to eat these detachable parts and choke. Eight detachment reports have become known, but thankfully, none of those led to an injury. Parents are advised to detach the bows and flowers and discard them properly or bring the socks back for a refund. The socks were sold across the country by Trumpette, Right Start, and Buy Buy Baby.
