June 15, 2006
Nine West Footwear
The Danger:
The sandals' metal tacks, which help to hold down the sides of the strap to the sole, can detach or be pulled out, posing a laceration hazard.
This recall involves about 6,700 pairs of Sam & Libby girls' thong sandals. The recalled models are the Fish, Starfish, and Angelfish. The model can be identified by the decoration attached to the sandals' straps; a fish, a starfish, or an angelfish. The sandals' straps are bright pink (Starfish) or bright turquoise (Fish and Angelfish). The top of the sole looks like wood and the bottom is pink (Starfish) or turquoise (Fish and Angelfish). The top of the sole has a pink label with the words "Sam and Libby" written in silver. The sandals were sold in little girls' size 11 through girls' size 5.
