Sandals recalled

About 15,000 pairs of Birkenstock children's sandals have been recalled because they pose a choking hazard to children.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — More than 15,000 pairs of children’s sandals have been recalled because they pose a choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced.

Birkenstock USA recalled the Kids’ Mogami Sandals in sizes 24 to 38 for up to age 3 on July 27, because a plastic rivet can detach from the sandal’s ankle strap, posing a choking threat to young children.

The recalled sandals are black, ultra-blue, pink and icy acid lime. The plastic rivets used to attach the back strap to the side of the sandal are pink on the pink sandal and black on all other sandals. “BIRKENSTOCK” is printed on the sandal’s footbed and on the buckle.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled sandals away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund, the CPSC said.

In addition to the 15,200 pairs sold in the United States, about 27 pairs were sold in Canada, the announcement said.
