WASHINGTON (AP) -- Reebok is voluntarily recalling 140,000 of its Allen Iverson toddler shoes because of a potential choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Monday.

The commission said the logo tag on the tongue of the "Iverson/Answer" shoe can be peeled off, posing a risk to young children.

There have been no reports of injuries, but the CPSC said an 8-month-old child did put the logo tag in its mouth. It was removed by the youngster's mother and resulted in no injury.

The mid-and low-style athletic shoes were sold in toddler sizes two through 10 at Reebok, children's apparel and athletic shoe stores nationwide from March through August, the agency said. They cost about $35.

Model numbers included in the recall are: 99553, B99553, 99554, B99554, 105155, B105155, 105158 and B105158. The model number can be found on a label on the underside of the tongue.

Consumers are advised to stop using the shoes immediately and contact Reebok on the Web at http://www.reebok.com or at (800) 843-4444 for a refund.
