    I received an email from a girlfriend this morning. I'm not a huge fan of these warning emails, but it struck home because I know so many of us are on the search for inexpensive flip flops for our guests..

    Here's a story about problems with toxins in flip flops that are coming from China.. Urban Legends Reference Pages: Wal-Mart Flip-Flops Cause Chemical Burns

      I've seen this - terrible!

      I've never had a problem with them before, but it's made me think twice about buying them again!

      this is almost as bad as the croc issues where kids feet and toes were being pulled off when using escalators.

            OMG! I wish I was really surprised but I am not. That is so gross and I really hope someone sues, I didn't read the whole story so I am not sure if someone is. Some of those women are going to have scars on their feet.
