Swedish sandals recalled because of faulty straps

About 3,900 Hanna Andersson clogs are being recalled because the straps could come off the sole, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

Sold at Hanna Andersson stores nationwide in the US, its catalog and website from January 2007 through July 2007 for between $48 US and $58 US, the affected shoes are called Birchwood Sole Sandal Clogs and are a hazard because the leather ankle strap can tear or separate from the sole.

The recalled sandals come in blue, pink and black and were sold in European sizes 25-41. The bottom of the wooden sole has rubber grips. The words “Hanna Andersson” and “Made in Sweden” are printed on the sole.

Customers should immediately stop using the recalled shoes and contact Hanna Andersson for instructions on returning them for a full refund.
