Stride Rite Children's Group LLC of Lexington, Mass., is recalling about 7,500 "Joanna" girl's sandals because the metal flower on the shoe can detach, posing a choking hazard.
The "Joanna" sandals were sold in white with a silver-colored metal flower and brown with a copper-colored metal flower in girl's sizes 8.5 through 10. The name "Joanna," the style number CG40723 (white shoe) or CG40725 (brown shoe) and the size are printed on the underside of the front shoe strap. "StrideRite" appears on the bottom of the shoe.
They were sold at Stride Rite stores and other department stores nationwide and online at striderite.com and various online retailers from December 2011 through May 2013 for between $30 and $42.
Consumers should contact Stride Rite to receive a prepaid envelope for the return of the shoes. Upon return, customers will receive a voucher for the purchase price redeemable at Stride Rite stores or striderite.com.
