Walmart responded to reports of razor blades being found in shoes.
On Tuesday, Longview News-Journal reported that Candi Mace brought her son to try on sneakers at the Longview Walmart in Texas the day after Christmas, when they found four razor blades in the sneakers. After informing an employee, Mace found razors in a second pair of shoes.
In a statement, Walmart said it was “appalled someone would do this in our store” and confirmed that staff checked the surrounding area and found no other issues.
Longview Walmart employees said the razor blades looked like they had been taken from the hardware department before being placed in two pairs of shoes.
