When you hear about recalls, flip-flops aren’t exactly the first things that spring to mind, but the Consumer Product Safety folks and Havaianas just recalled 210,000 pairs of sandals because there’s lead paint on the soles. Check your kids’ closets (and your own too) for flip-flops with decorative paint – flowers, animals or prints. They were sold under 22 different names, including Baby Estampas, Kids Flores and Kids Surf, from Nov. 2006 through last month, for $15-$24 a pair. If you’ve got a suspect pair, visit the companyâ€™s Web site at www.havaianasus.com or call 888-289-5306 for a replacement.
