Nordstrom recalls girls shoes with lead paint

Associated Press

SEATTLE — Nordstrom is recalling 31,000 girls shoes that were made in China and have excessive levels of lead used in paint on the outer soles.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Nordstrom brand shoes were offered between September 2006 and February 2009 and sold for $35 to $45.

Consumers should take the shoes away from children and return them to a Nordstrom store.
