Walmart says it has pulled thousands of cheap sandals that had of customers complaining about painful, lingering rashes, WFTV in Florida reports.
When it got worse the dermatologist said that it was definitely not a fungus…
A woman by the name of Ginger Edwards from Walmart headquarters in Bentonville called me initially back in July and wanted the shoes so they could test them and informed me that I was the 9th case reported, note that was in JULY. I emailed her pictures of my feet but I did not mail the shoes. I chose instead to use my better judgment and held on to the flip flops as EVERYONE at Walmart has given me the impression that they are completely apathetic to my problem. I or my son, visited Walmart daily after having complained IN PERSON after visiting the doctor the first time back in July and having showed them my feet, and the shoes remained on the shelf until last week!!
Like Kerry, Walmart told her to file a complaint with the Chinese manufacturer of the bargain sandals.
Kerry, whose feet broke out into some sort of awful rash/burn after wearing Walmart flipflops, has been wearing latex gloves to determine if she’s allergic to latex (so far she’s not.) She’s also collecting photos from more people who have had reactions to the same flip flops. If not latex, then what? Suggestions welcome! [Kerry's Site]
