Woolies recalls summer sandals

2013-10-17 00:00

IF you have bought a sandal with a metal strip embellishment from Woolworths, you may want to return it.

The sandals are being recalled after two people were injured while wearing them.

Woolworths warned yesterday that the metal strip that goes over the foot has sharp edges that may cause injury. The sandal, which is part of the Woolworths summer range, has been on sale since July.

Following injuries to two customers, the sandal has been removed from sales floors and Woolworths is asking anyone who bought them to return them for a full refund.

The sandal comes in white, black and brown. The style number of the sandals is 502051096, which is located under the foot strap.

“The safety of our customers is of utmost importance, and therefore we immediately initiated the recall,” said Woolworths managing director of clothing and general merchandise, Brett Kaplan, who apologised for the recall.
