Loblaw recalls children's running shoes over choking hazard

Loblaw Cos. Ltd. said Dec. 14 that it is recalling Joe Fresh-branded baby girls' running shoes because the velcro on the shoe can come off and pose a choking hazard to children.

The shoes were sold in stores across the Ontario, Atlantic and Québec provinces in Canada. The running shoes have the style code BGF8F50151 and were on sale since Aug. 3.

Loblaw said five cases of the velcro coming off the shoes have been reported, but there have been no reports of injuries.

The retailer added that it has removed all potentially affected shoes from store shelves. It advised customers who have purchased the shoes to return the item to any store where Joe Fresh products are sold for a full refund.
