Some 210,000 pairs of Havaianas flip-flops are being recalled.
Apparently, the decorative paint on the sole of the flip flops contain levels of lead that exceed federal standards. Costing anywhere from $15 to $20 bucks per pair, the shoes were sold in specialty stores nationwide from November 2006 to February 2009.
The recalled flip flops should be taken away from children and returned to Alpargatas USA, inc. To receive a replacement.
The flip flops were sold under the following model names: baby estampas, baby pets, kids apple, kids fairy, kids flores, kids lighthouse, kids monsters, kids surf, baby letrinhas, kids sports, kids candies, kids fun, kids love, kids sereias, kids speed, kids lucky bug, kids pets, kids rock, kids slim, kids wonder woman, kids small flowers and kids tropical w/kit.
Havaianas flip flops without decorative paint are not being recalled.
