Brown Shoe Co. Inc., of St. Louis, Missouri and its affiliate, Pagoda International Footwear Ltd., of Hong Kong have recalled about 1.4 million <"https://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Buster Brown & Co.’s Clog Children’s Shoes. Of note, about 73,000 pair of shoes were previously recalled in April 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced.

The recall has been initiated because the defective shoe has decorative wheels that can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. To date, said the CPSC, the companies have received two reports of a decorative wheel detaching from the shoe. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Buster Brown & Co. clog children’s shoes with model or retail numbers listed below. These shoes are a plastic molded EVA “water” clog and are designed to resemble a car. The shoes are red, brown, blue, yellow, and pink and most shoes bear the words “CARS,” “Transformers Animated,” or “Barbie.” “Buster Brown & Co.™” is printed on the shoe inside at the heel, on a sewn-in tag inside the fleece-lined shoe, and on the original hang tag. The model or retail number can also be found on these tags. The shoes were sold in children sizes 5 to 13 and youth sizes 1-3.

The recalled shoes—which were manufactured in China—were sold at major retailers nationwide, including Bealls’, Famous Footwear, J.C. Penney, Meijer, Rack Room, Sears, Shoe Show, Target, and Wal-Mart from August 2007 through June 2009 and retailed for $10 to $25.

The CPSC is advising customers to immediately take this product away from children and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Buster Brown & Co. can be reached toll-free at 1-888-869-1044 between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday and between 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Central Time on Saturday, at the firm’s website at www.busterbrownshoes.com, or by email to Busterandtige@brownshoe.com.

In recent years, imports from China have been at the center of safety worries in the United States and other countries. But, despite alleged problems with some imports, especially of children’s toys and products such defective products continue to be made with elements that exceed federal standards or that could pose serious, sometimes fatal, health concerns.

This law firm is awesome. Alex and Cathy did there thing. As long as I been with them I still don't know Cathy's name. They were NEVER to busy. The young ladies in the front lobby very nice. When they would see me they knew my name. That's how I knew I had the right law firm. Thank you for easing my mind.

Christina Morace my Paralegal at Parker Waichman’s Long Island office successfully obtained not one but two World Trade Center Victim Compensation awards for myself. She was knowledgeable, always there for me and fought for the compensation I deserved for working at Ground Zero and then unfortunately getting two 911 related ailments. I will highly recommend Christina to anyone who has to go through the Victim’s Compensation process.
