L.L. Bean Recalls Ice Cleats Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with L.L. Bean Inc., of Freeport, Maine, announced a voluntary recall of Stabilicer Lite Cleats. The elastic harness system attaching the cleats to footwear can detach, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

The cleats are worn over footwear for traction in winter walking conditions. The recalled cleats were sold in blue, orange, and pink. Black Stabilicers Lite cleats are not included in this recall.

The cleats were sold in sizes small through extra large. The name Stabilicers Lite appears in raised letters on the underside of the harness. The cleats in question were sold at: L.L. Bean stores nationwide, LLBean.com and the L.L. Bean catalog from August 2008 through November 2008 for about $20. The firm has received two reports of the harness breaking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cleats and contact L.L. Bean to receive a replacement or refund. For additional information, contact L.L. Bean at (800) 555-9717 anytime or visit the firm's Web site at www.llbean.com.
