Wolverine Recalls Logger Boots Due to Shock Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Wolverine World Wide, today announced a voluntary recall of its Caterpillar brand steel toe logger boots.

The company states that the estimated 9,500 recalled logger boots could be incorrectly labeled as resistant to electrical current, posing a shock hazard to consumers who come in contact with an electrical current. No injuries have been reported.

The boots were sold in women's and men's sizes. Women's boots were sold in black and have stock number P88030. Men's boots were sold in brown and black and have stock numbers P88033 or P88034. Stock numbers are printed on a label on the tongue of the shoe. The Caterpillar logo and "EH" are also printed on the label. The word "Caterpillar" is printed on the outside of the boots.

The boots were sold at shoe stores and other independent retailers nationwide from September 2006 through July 2007 for between $90 and $130.

Consumers are advised to stop wearing the recalled boots immediately and contact Wolverine to receive a free replacement pair of boots. For additional information, call 800-789-8586 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or visit www.wolverineworldwide.com.
