The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced yesterday that Brown Shoe Co., a Clayton, Missouri based company, is voluntarily recalling 1.4 million pairs of Clog Children’s Shoes made by Buster Brown, a division of Brown Shoe Co. The recall was initiated after Brown Shoe Co. received two reports of decorative wheels on the shoes detaching, which could pose as a choking hazard for young children.The shoes are a plastic-molded clog that are designed to be worn by kids in the water. The shoes are also designed to resemble a car. The shoes being recalled come in red, brown, blue, yellow, or pink and have the words “CARS”, “Transformers Animated”, or “Barbie” displayed on the outside of the shoe. The name of the Brown Shoe division, Buster Brown, is also listed on the inside of the shoe at the heel. The shoes were originally sold in children sizes 5-13 and youth sizes 1-3 at a variety of retail stores including, Famous Footwear, Sears, Target, and Wal-Mart, from August 2007-June 2009. While there have been reports that the decorative wheels can detach from the shoe, there have been no injuries yet reported.
