Children's Animal Slippers Sold Exclusively at Family Dollar Stores are Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

 

HARTFORD -- The Department of Consumer protection is alerting consumers about a new voluntary recall announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and BCNY International, Inc. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

About 160,000 pairs of Kidgets® Animal Sock Top Slippers sold at Family Dollar Stores are being recalled because the plush animal’s eyes can detach from the slippers, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The recalled children's slippers have brown or tan dog faces, yellow duck faces and tan lion faces. The name "Kidgets" and the size appear inside the slippers on the soles. "FD9619108020690611" is printed inside the slippers on the side.

Family Dollar has received one report of the eyes detaching from the slippers.

Consumers should immediately take the slippers away from children and return them to any Family Dollar store for a full refund. For additional information, contact Family Dollar at (800) 547-0359 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.familydollar.com
