WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation

consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately
unless otherwise instructed.

label inside the shoes reads "364430" and "MADE IN CHINA."

Sold at: H&M stores in the Northeast U.S. and California from March 2005 through
May 2006 for about $8.

Manufactured In: China

Remedy: Consumers should stop using these shoes and immediately return them to
any H&M store for a full refund.
