July 21 (Reuters) - Brown Shoe Co Inc (BWS.N) will recall a total of 1.4 million units of China-made Buster Brown & Co clog children's shoes on concerns the footwear's decorative wheels could detach, posing a choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The retailer, which had distributed the footwear along with its affiliate Pagoda International Footwear Ltd based in Hong Kong, had received two reports of the decorative wheels detaching from the shoe, the commission said in a statement.

About 73,000 pairs were recalled in April, the commission said, adding that no injuries have been reported.
