About 210,000 children's flip flops are being recalled due to a violation of the lead in paint standard.
Manufactured by Alpargatas USA Inc. of New York, N.Y., the flip flops have decorative paint on the sole that can contain lead levels in excess of the federal standard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
