On August 13, 2018, I purchased two 30in X 24in accent rugs at Walmart. Within a week the bottom of my feet were getting small lacerations on them. One foot started to bleed. I checked the rug closely with a flashlight. I found a metallic thread woven into the rug. It was like a strand of Stainless Steel. I pulled the strand out with pliers and saved it.
I plan on returning the rugs, but I think they should be recalled as to prevent further injuries.
