Matthews, NC — Family Dollar Services, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a voluntary product recall of about 16,000 Kidgets® Animal Sock Top Slippers, for choking hazards the defective product poses to young children. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on November 16, 2011.

The Kidgets® Animal Sock Top Slippers were recalled after discovering that the animal’s eyes can detach from the slippers, which poses a choking hazard to young children.

“The recalled children’s slippers have brown or tan dog faces, yellow duck faces and tan lion faces. The name ‘Kidgets’ and the size appear inside the slippers on the soles. ‘FD9619108020690611’ is printed inside the slippers on the side,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the slippers to any Family Dollar store to receive a full refund.

For more information regarding the product recall, consumers can contact Family Dollar at (800) 547-0359 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit
