TORONTO, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Payless ShoeSource Canada is voluntarily
recalling approximately 30 pairs of girls' boots sold in Canada because of a
risk that the guitar shaped zipper pulls on the inside of the boots can become
entangled with each other and may cause the child to trip and fall.
Payless ShoeSource, Inc. has also issued a voluntary recall in the United
States in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
These boots are black with a guitar silhouette on the outside of the boot
and a golden guitar shaped zipper pull on the inside of the boot. "Hanna
Montana" is engraved on the boot outsole and a photo of the singer and show's
character is printed on the box. The boots were sold in various toddler and
youth sizes 10.5 to 4.5. Only the Hannah Montana boots with guitar-shaped
zipper pulls sold in August and September 2007 are included in the Canadian
recall. No other styles or models are included in this Canadian recall.
The boots were sold at Payless ShoeSource stores in Canada in August and
September 2007 for $39.99.
Consumers should take these boots away from children immediately and
return them to a Payless ShoeSource store for a cash refund or exchange. For
more information, consumers may contact Payless toll-free at (800) 654-0697
between 7:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. Central Time Daily.
