Defective product sold in Pennsylvania subject to recall

Parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere often purchase cute, cuddly clothes items for their infants and young children. The items are whimsical and can even work as a play things for little ones. However, one such item is now the subject of a defective product recall after being found to be a danger for the young children for which it was intended.

The consumer product that is the subject of the defective product recall was sold at Cracker Barrel stores across the nation. The froggy socks were sold to consumers at the stores between Jan. and March 2013. There were approximately 5,000 pairs of these socks sold at Cracker Barrel while they were on the shelves.

Injuries could be suffered by young children as a result of wearing the froggy socks. This may be because of the stuffed frog head that is attached to the front portion of the sock. The stitching can become undone, allowing a child to put small items in their mouths and swallow. This action could result in a choking hazard for kids.

If parents in Pennsylvania believe that they purchased the froggy socks at Cracker Barrel, they should discontinue use of them immediately. In addition, they may wish to return the defective products to either Cracker barrel or the sock manufacturer. If a child has been inured from the use of the socks, parents may wish to not only seek medical care but to create a list of medical treatments needed. This information could become important if it becomes necessary to seek a claim against the seller or manufacturer of the defective product due to the extent of injuries suffered by a child.
