Boots recalled due to safety concern

Published On: Mar 15 2013 05:16:12 PM EDT

Working with federal regulators, the company behind the Stuart Weitzman brand is recalling some women's and girls' boots. The boots affected are known as Cha Cha and Cha Cha 2.

They come in black or white vinyl with quilted nylon shafts in sizes 13 through 5. The boots have zippers with gold-tone SW logo zipper pulls on the inside side of the boots. The model name and size is printed on a white tag inside the top of the boots.

Federal regulators say the zipper pull can get tangled which can cause someone to fall.

The manufacturer, Synclaire Brands U.S.A. has received 3 reports of the zipper pulls becoming entangled to each other, including one injury that occurred when a child wearing the boots attempted to untangle the zipper pulls. The child lost her balance and hit her head on the sidewalk. She needed stitches on her forehead.

What To Do

Consumers should immediately take the boots away from children and return them for a full refund. The boots were sold at Bloomingdale's, Belk Stores, TJ Maxx nationwide and online at Zappos from September 2011 through February 2013 for about $65.

You can contact Synclaire Brands U.S.A. at (888) 998-0702 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or go to the firm's website at and click on recall information.
