Kerry, the woman whose feet suffered some sort of burn from wearing flip flops, has written in to defend herself against the comments on Consumerist.
I am the woman that bought the flip flops that burnt my feet.
I wanted to add a comment to the people that were asking why I would keep wearing the flip flops, first of all, before I wore my flip flops for the first time I rinsed them with water, then I put them here & there for a little while each time, by the time I was sure there was a problem I set them aside & never put them on again, I tried to go to the doctor right away but have no insurance so it was hard to fine a place to go here in FL, I went as SOON AS I COULD.
As far as me trying to “get ” walmart, I simply want them to make me whole, I paid for doctor visits that I would never had to go to if this hadn’t happened, I just want to be made whole.
I am not to “get anyone” I was worried that there may be a problem and that little kids may be hurt & that’s why I went to them in the first place.
As for my feet being ugly, I never argue that, but now they are ugly AND scarred, it left scars, permanent scars. By telling my story I hope that people will simply be careful with the things they purchase.
UPDATE: Kerry’s site went down, so we mirrored her photos here.
