The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Trumpette Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of about 30,000 “Aubree’s” and “Hearts” baby socks because the flowers and the bows on the baby socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves “Aubree’s” and “Hearts” baby socks sold in sizes 0 to 12 months. “Aubree’s” socks have flowers attached to the toes. “Hearts” socks have bows attached to the toes of the heart-patterned socks. “TRUMPETTE” is printed on the soles. They were sold in packages of six pairs of socks in multiple colors.
The firm has received eight reports of the flowers or bows detaching from the socks. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled socks away from babies and remove the flowers or bows to eliminate the hazard, or return the socks to the place of purchase or Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
