Yesterday, the CPSC, in conjunction with Trumpette, issued a recall on over 33,000 pairs of Trumpette baby socks. According to the CPSC, the flowers and bows on the baby socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
So far, there have only been eight reported incidents of the flowers and bows detaching from the socks. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.
Here's what you need to know:
The recall, which includes the "Aubree's" and "Hearts" baby socks collection, are sold in sizes 0 to 12 months. The "Aubree's" socks have flowers attached to the toes while the "Hearts" socks have bows attached to the toes on their heart-patterned socks. The company name, Trumpette, is printed on the soles of each style of socks, and they were packaged and sold in pairs of six. They were sold in multiple colors.
If you own the "Aubree's" or the "Hearts" socks, stop using them immediately and remove the flowers (or bows) to eliminate the hazard for young children. You may return the socks to the place of purchase, or return them to Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
The socks have been sold at Buy Buy Baby, Right Start and Trumpette stories nationwide and are also available online at BuyBuyBaby.com, RightStart.com and Trumpette.com. They were sold from December 2012 through February of 2013 for $15.00.
