Payless ShoeSource Recalls Sneakers

Bloomberg News

Payless ShoeSource Inc. is recalling about 80,000 pairs of children's sneakers after two children ingested the teddy bear metal clasps on the shoes, causing one of the children to choke, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday. The recall involves two types of "Coasters" brand sneakers--the "Royal Zipper Low" and "White Zipper Low"--in toddler sizes that were sold nationwide starting in March, the CPSC said. Company officials couldn't be reached for comment.
