Recall Alert: Children's Slippers & Ice Cream Scooper

December 27, 2011 Updated Dec 27, 2011 at 12:27 PM EST

(WBNG Binghamton) Slippers that you'll want to look out for, and an ice cream scooper that could fly across the room. Those items are recalled in this week's recall alert.

They're supposed to keep your feet toasty, but if the eyes on these animal slippers fall off, it might be worth staying chilly.

Kidgets Animal Sock Top Slippers are sold exclusively in Family Dollar Stores.

Now the chain is pulling about 160,000 pairs of the slippers from its shelves because it fears the eyes can fall off and young children may choke.

The slippers in question resemble dogs, ducks and lions.

They were sold in September and October for about $5.

You may bring the slippers back to any Family Dollar for a full refund.
Call the company at (800) 547-0359 or familydollar.com.

Are you planning an ice cream party? You may want to double check your ice cream scooper.

If it wears a Pampered Chef Label, you'll want to bring it back for a refund.

Pampered Chef says its received 16 reports where the scooper's handle has flown off with great force, causing damage to kitchen items, as well as consumers.

In six situations, it's caused cuts or bruises.

The dippers in question are metallic gray aluminum with a plastic-dome shaped cap. A non-toxic liquid is sealed inside the handle of the product which conducts the heat of your hand to scoop hard ice cream. They were sold through Pampered Chef consultants and online for $15.

If you have such a scooper, contact the company to receive either a replacement or a refund. Call (877) 917-2433 or go pamperedchef.com.
