PRODUCT SAFETY RECALL Scuba shoes for children
Order numbers (in H&M stores): 364430 - 6569, 364431 - 6569 and 364432 - 6569 (on care label) Article number: (mail order through H&M Rowells. Nordic countries only): 47 - 7547 and 70 - 1177 Price: £3.99 Size: 22 - 23, 1.5 - 8 years
With concern for our youngest customers, H&M has decided to recall this scuba shoe with rubber sole. It has emerged that when the rubber sole gets wet it becomes very slippery on flat surfaces, for example tiles which can pose the risk of slipping.
We ask all customers who have been given or have purchased these children's scuba shoes to return them to any H&M store, where you will receive a full refund.
If the shoes were bought through our mail order division, H&M Rowells (Nordic countries only), we kindly ask you to return them to H&M Rowells. All your expenses for the shoes and postage will be automatically paid to you through the mode of payment that was used when you paid for the delivery.
We are sorry that these scuba shoes have wrongly passed our safety and quality tests.
If you have any questions please contact H&M's quality department on + 46 (0)8 796 5500 or at email@example.com This information is also available at www.hm.com
