The US Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning parents that kids’ sandals manufactured by Alpargatas USA Inc., of New York, N.Y., have decorative paint on the soles that contains excess amounts of lead.
The flip flops were made in Brazil and sold at a variety of retail outlets between November 2006 and February 2009 under a number of different brand names including:
· Baby Letrinhas.
· Kids Sports.
· Kids Candies.
The safety commission says there have been no reports of illness from wearing the shoes. Consumers should return the shoes to Alpargatas for replacement, the agency said.
