Skidders Footwear is recalling some of its children's shoes, due to a potential risk of injury. The company says rivets on the shoes have sharp edges, posing a laceration hazard.

The New York-based firm has received three reports of the rivets scratching the feet of the wearer. No injuries have been reported.

The products are sold exclusively at Meijer stores located in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin, from August 2016 through October 2016 for about $10.

The recall affects about 5,500 pairs of canvas tennis shoes sold in three sizes: 12M, 18M and 24M. The shoes have white rubber bottoms and come in three different colors: navy blue fabric with orange rivets and laces, gray fabric with green rivets and laces, and denim colored fabric with pink rivets and laces.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled shoes away from children and contact Skidders Footwear to receive a full refund.

Skidders Footwear toll-free at 866-636-1221 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.skidders.com and click on "Safety Notice" at the bottom of the page for more information.
