US: 12,200 children's shoes recalled on cut risk
The metal rivets can pose a laceration hazard to children
Eastman Footwear Group is recalling around 12,200 children's shoes after the metal rivets surrounding the holes where the shoestring is secured were found to have sharp edges, posing a laceration hazard.
The Coleman Runestone style shoes, which were made in China, were sold at Big 5 Sporting Goods stores in the US between January and December 2013 for US$39.
One report has been received of an adult who scratched or cut his finger, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). But no medical attention was required.
