Slips and Slides Leads Target to Recall Sandals

December 7, 2004

A safety recall of Mossimo Beaded Sandals has been conducted voluntarily by Target Corp. in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

According to officials, the sole of the sandal can become slippery, causing the consumer to fall and receive bodily injury.

Target has reportedly received 15 reports of incidents involving falls. There have been nine injuries reported including injuries to the back, head and wrist, and reports of broken bones and bruising.

The Mossimo thong sandals have beads and shells sewn onto the straps. The sandals were sold in beige or brown suede in sizes ranging from 5 to 10, whole sizes only. “Mossimo” is engraved on the inner sole, and the size of the sandal is printed on a clear label affixed to the side.

The sandals were sold at Target Stores nationwide from January 2004 through August 2004 for about $10.
