The Dangerous Downside of Flip Flops...



Read the article and make your own decision. There is absolutely, positively NO WAY I will ever buy a pair of flip flops at Walmart or anywhere for that matter...that say that they were made in China!!

WARNING: Feet Pictures are very GRAPHIC!!

I swear my daughter has a pair of those. I had seen the email but wow, that's a lotta feet!

WOW. And I totally love flip flops...

Ouch! That would make me nuts. I can't wear flip flops cause they hurt my toes but it makes me wonder about some of those other rubber type sandals that Wal Mart sells. I don't like Wal Mart to begin with, this just heightens my dislike.

This was going around last year and I thought it was so gross. It sure makes one think. Makes me glad I can't STAND flip flops. Oh man I hate them with a passion. flipflipflipflipflipflipflipflip....GAH!!!!

i once wore a plastic pair, and they ripped the skin off the top of my feet (on a hot day at an air show). never again! always wear leather or fabric flipflops. reefs are the BEST. i live in them.

NO WAY. I can totally see why and how this can happen. I have never liked flip-flops but THIS confirmed I never WILL! :)

That is terrible. Those are severe burns. I read one about the nurse telling her to use cortisone cream. That surprises me because cortisone cream slows growth of skin cells which is why it is use for skin problems like excema and psoriasis which has the skin growing at a faster rate if I remember right. This is a burn situation and I imagine it would hurt like the dickens. Crazy.

Holy cow! That's some bad reactions. I've worn flip flops since I was 5 years old and have never had a reaction. However I've never worn ones that look like that (plastic ones), I've always worn thongs with either leather straps or woven nylon.

That sounds pretty bad. I don't wear them so I don't think I will be affected but....now you have to be careful with just about anything you buy these days.
