Additional link about Flip flops! Snopes update!

Check this link out on Snopes. It is definitely true but it happened nearly 2 years ago! We still should be doubly careful about things made in China though.

My sister in law sent this in my email this morning. I usually don't read emails like this but this intrigued me because it was about Wal-mart and I buy a lot of my summer shoes at Wal-mart. I wanted to make everyone aware lest they want to buy any flip flops from Wal-mart. DO NOT BUT SHOES ESPECIALLY FLIP FLOPS FROM CHINA!

Here is what I found in my email.


This is very true I heard it in news from one of our local radios here that our govt has to be extra careful on these cheap imports from China especially clothes because the Chinese are using some strong but cheap chemical in their manufactures.

If any of you reading this has heard something else and this is false, please let me know! otherwise--Consider yourself warned!

Fortunately, I can't even stand to walk past the shoe dept. at WalMart, much less go into always smells like stinky feet, and that just grosses me out (maybe it's just a local thing).

Nasty! Hmmm, I hope Old Navy flip flops don't have this issue....I would be hurting!!! They are summer wear de jour at my house!

WOW this is new to me, but I rarely shop at Walmart anyways. Not surprising food, child's toys, drywall, and now shoes. What's next? Thanks for the heads up.

omg - you know thats why I'm trying to replace all my 'new' kitchen stuff with older glass stuff made in the US. If you look for stuff, anything...its all made in china.

That is just crazy. I think they should just name them 'flops'.
