5,600 pairs of children’s shoes from Livie & Luca are being recalled due to a potential laceration hazard. These shoes have a metal thread inside the shoe’s interior lining and can loosen and then poke through the shoe lining, posing a hazard of a laceration to the child wearing the shoe.
The recalled Livie & Luca children’s shoes include two styles: Carta and Cotton. The Carta style Mary Jane shoes are canvas, solid color shoes stitched to a tan sole with a fabric strap and a brown wooden button. The Carta shoes are blue, fuchsia or gray. The Cotton style Mary Jane canvas shoes have a stitched tan rubber sole and a colored fabric strap with a dandelion printed on a pink square button and a gingham or polka-dot cotton interior lining. The cotton shoes are yellow, green or red. Both the Carta and the Cotton style shoes were sold in toddler sizes 4 through 13. Only shoes with date codes 06 2013 through 12 2013 (Month Year) printed on the insole of the shoe are included in the recall. The Livie & Luca logo is printed on the inside of the shoe.
Livie & Luca has received two reports of the metal thread coming through the liner of the shoe, which in one case the child’s foot was cut by the metal thread that had poked through the lining. If your child wears any of these shoes, immediately take the shoes away from the child and contact the store of purchase for a store credit or replacement. If you purchased these shoes online through the Livie & Luca site, contact them for instructions on how you can get a store credit or a free replacement pair with prepaid shipping before disposing of the shoes.
