Skidders Footwear has issued a recall of approximately 5,500 pairs of children's shoes. The rivets on the shoes have sharp edges, posing a laceration hazard.

This recall involves Skidders Footwear children's canvas tennis shoes sold in three sizes: 12M, 18M, and 24M.

The recalled shoes have white rubber bottoms and come in three different colors: navy blue fabric with orange rivets and laces, gray fabric with green rivets and laces, and denim colored fabric with pink rivets and laces.

The firm has received three reports of the rivets scratching the feet of the wearer to date. Thus far, no injuries related to this recall have been reported.

The recalled children's shoes were sold at Meijer stores located in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin, from August 2016 through October 2016 for about $10.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled shoes away from children and contact Skidders Footwear at (866) 636-1221 or email them at sales@skidders.com to receive a full refund.
