Clothing retailer L.L. Bean is recalling about 4,400 faux shearling infant booties, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday.
Infants are in danger of choking on a small zipper tab on the booties, which can detach, the commission says. The company has learned of six incidents involving the zipper tab coming loose from the boots. No injuries have been reported.
The booties were sold in sizes ranging from 1 to 6 in tan or pink colours. They are marked with the stock #BNK1 on the inside of the shoes.
The products were sold through L.L. Bean's catalogues, on its website and in retail stores in the U.S. from July 2006 through December 2006 for about $16.50 US.
Consumers should take the booties away from children and contact the company for a refund.
