Is it me or are there more chocking risk related recalls than ever before? The manufacturer of Falls Creek infant shoes has issued a recall of about 2,300 infant shoes due to a potential choking hazard. Apparently, the shoelaces may detach from the shoes, causing a choking hazard.
Granted, there are lots of things that are choking hazards to infants and small children. Keep an eye out for balloons, gumballs, coins, marbles, hot dogs, and other choking risk type foods, batteries, marker caps, and anything else that you can imagine your child choking on if swallowed or lodged in his/her mouth.
