Sacramento's Trumpette, the upscale baby clothing and accessories store, has voluntarily recalled about 33,000 pairs of baby socks because embellishments on the socks can detach and create a potential choking hazard for youngsters.
The recall is being done in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall centers on the "Aubree's" and "Hearts" styles of socks, offered from newborn to 12 months.
"Aubree's" socks have flowers attached to the toes, and "Hearts" socks have bows attached to the toes of the heart-patterned socks. "Trumpette" is printed on the soles.
CPSC said Trumpette received eight reports of the flowers or bows detaching from the socks. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers are being asked to immediately take the recalled socks away from babies and remove the flowers or bows to eliminate the potential hazard. Owners can return the socks to the place of purchase or Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
The socks are sold at Trumpette's retail store at 2020 I St., in Sacramento and at stores nationwide. They can also be purchased at various online sites.
CPSC said the socks are manufactured in China and imported by Trumpette.
Consumers can also get more information on the recall by calling (877) 938-7265, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Trumpette says it will update recall information on its website, www.trumpette.com.
