They were sold from September 2011 through October 2011 for about $5.

The eyes on the animals can detach, posing a potential choking hazard.

The recalled slippers have dog, duck or lion faces. The name "Kidgets" and the size appear inside the slippers on the soles. "FD9619108020690611" is printed inside the slippers on the side.
