Clothing retailer Madewell has expanded its recall of 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.

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

The recall, which initially involved all Madewell Sightseer sandals from the spring 2015 collection, has now expanded to the Katya sandal, also from the spring 2015 collection.

The metallic sand or rose gold-coloured leather sandals have a wide strap with a lace-up thong. The style number C5840 is located on a sticker on the outsole.

The sandals, which were manufactured in Brazil, were sold at Madewell stores and online at madewell.com and shopbop.com from April to August 2015 for US$100.
