Some 50,600 women's sandals are being recalled

Clothing business Madewell has recalled some 50,600 women's sandals due to a potential falling hazard from the metal shank dislodging and breaking through the bottom of the outsole.

US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Madewell has received eight reports of the metal shanks dislodging and breaking through the bottom of the outsole, but no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves all Madewell Sightseer sandals from the spring 2015 collection. The sandals, which were manufactured in Brazil, were sold at Madewell stores and online at and from February to July 2015 for US$60-$80.
