Baby socks recalled for choking hazard

Published On: Apr 11 2013 07:03:00 PM EDT

There are some safety concerns surrounding some baby socks that are cute and colorful, but could prevent a choking hazard.

They are made by a company called Trumpette Inc. They are called "Aubree's" and "Hearts" baby socks. About 33,000 pairs of socks are affected.

"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 flowers and bows could fall off and pose that choking hazard to very small children.

While the company 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.
