Holiday Rattle Baby Slippers
Walgreen Co., of Deerfield, Ill. has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 57,000 Holiday Rattle Baby Slippers because the internal stuffing and rattle inside the slippers' decorative figures can be pulled out, posing a choking hazard to young children. The recalled slippers are decorated with stuffed fabric figures including snowmen, Santa, reindeer, and penguins, and have decorative rattles inside the slippers that sound like bells when shaken. Item number 999526 is printed on the back of the cardboard header card packaging. “Find Your Joy” is printed on the front of the slippers packaging. The affected baby slippers were sold exclusively at Walgreen stores nationwide from October 2010 through January 2011 for about $5.
Consumers should immediately stop using the slippers and return them to any Walgreen location for a full refund. For additional information, contact Atico International USA toll-free at (877) 546-4835 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.
