Clothing store chain Madewell is expanding a sandal recall because the shoes pose the risk of a fall. The sandals are “Katya” model women’s sandals from the company’s spring 2015 collection. A metal shank can dislodge and break through the bottom of the shoes, posing a risk that the wearer could fall, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The shoes were sold for about $100 by Madewell in its stores and online from April through August. The company has received one report of a metal shank dislodging and breaking through the bottom. No injuries have been reported, however. The expansion involves about 570 units sold in the U.S. and three in Canada, the commission said in a news release. The company recalled 50,600 women’s “Sightseer” sandals in August. Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled shoes and contact Madewell for a refund, the commission said. Madewell is owned by J. Crew Group Inc. Madewell’s toll-free number is 866-544-1937 or online at www.madewell.com.
