BRAMPTON, Ont. – Loblaw (TSX:L) is voluntarily recalling Joe Fresh brand pre-walker Footlets in pink, navy and grey because of a choking hazard.

The company says the slippers have a fabric at the back that could come loose and pose a choking hazard to children.

Loblaw says there has been one reported case of the fabric detaching and there have been no reports of injury.

The footwear were sold at several Loblaw-owned stores across the country since Feb. 12.

The affected footlets, which bear the style code BGS6GW2045 or BBS6FW2039, have been removed from store shelves.

Loblaw says customers can return the product to any store where Joe Fresh apparel is sold and they’ll get a full refund.
