Timberland Co. Recalls Steel-Toe Series Boots, Offers Free Replacements

The Timberland Co. (Stratham, N.H.), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling Timberland PRO Direct Attach Steel Toe Series boots made in the Dominican Republic and sold nationwide between September 2005 and September 2007. Product testing has demonstrated that the boots may not comply with applicable safety standards for compression and impact resistance, the company said, adding that while no injuries have been reported, consumers could suffer impact foot injuries.

The boots were sold under model numbers 26002, 65016, 26038, and 38021. They have a four-digit date code beginning with a number from 25 to 45 and ending in 35; this code and the model number can be found on the green loop tag inside the boot. Also inside the boot will be an imprint denoting its country of origin, reading something similar to this: "Genuine Leather and Manmade Upper, Manmade Lining and Outsole Made in Dominican Republic."

Consumers should stop wearing the recalled boots immediately and contact Timberland to receive a free replacement pair of boots, the company says. For additional information, contact Timberland toll-free at 1-800-445-5545 or visit www.timberlandpro.com.
