The company Livie & Luca has recalled two styles of children’s shoes due to a laceration hazard.
The firm has received two reports of the metal thread coming through the liner of the shoe, including one report of a child’s foot that was cut by a metal thread poking through the shoe lining.
The recalled Livie & Luca children’s shoes include two styles: Carta and Cotton.
The Carta style Mary Jane shoes are canvas, solid color shoes stitched to a tan sole with a fabric strap and a brown wooden button. The Carta shoes are blue, fuchsia or gray. The Cotton style Mary Jane canvas shoes have a stitched tan rubber sole and a colored fabric strap with a dandelion printed on a pink square button and a gingham or polka-dot cotton interior lining. The cotton shoes are yellow, green or red. Both the Carta and the Cotton style shoes were sold in toddler sizes 4 through 13.
Only shoes with date codes 06 2013 through 12 2013 (Month Year) printed on the insole of the shoe are included in the recall. The Livie & Luca logo is printed on the inside of the shoe.
Consumers should immediately take these shoes away from children and contact the retailer where purchased for instructions on receiving a store credit or replacement. If purchased through Livie & Luca’s online, contact the firm for instructions on receiving a store credit for a free replacement pair of shoes with prepaid shipping before disposing of the shoes.
