Loblaws is voluntarily recalling Joe Fresh baby slippers—which they refer to as "pre-walker Footlets"—in pink, navy and grey that have the style code BGS6GW2045 or BBS6FW2039. That's because the fabric attached to the back of the slipper has the potential to detach and may pose a choking hazard to children. The shoes have been available since February 12, 2016.

One instance of the fabric detaching has been reported, but so far there have been no reports of injury.

What's Loblaws doing? The company has released a recall and has removed all affected products from store shelves.

What should you do? If you have this product, return it to any store where Joe Fresh clothes are sold and you'll receive a full refund (a receipt won't be necessary). If you have any questions, phone 1-888-495-5111 or email
