Killer Crocs, Footless Chefs

2008_04_killercrocs.jpgMario Batali and Thomas Keller are the poster boys for the legion of chefs donning Crocs these days, but now multiple safety warnings have been issued for the shoes: "...the government of Japan ordered Crocs redesigned because of a potential hazard... 'When this resin material from which Crocs is created makes contact with the side of an escalator, the foot will get sucked in the mechanism of the escalator and take the child's foot with it,' said Andrew Laskin." Child, celebrity chef, whatever: just another reason to take the stairs, Mario. [ABC7 via Eater SF]
