The internal stuffing and rattle inside the slippers decorative figures can be pulled out, posing a choking hazard to young children. Atico received one report of a 7-month-old baby that was found beginning to turn blue with the slippers' stuffing in its mouth. The baby's father removed the stuffing. Two additional reports of babies wearing the slippers who pulled on the rattle/stuffing and the stuffing came out were also reported. No injuries reported.
