CPSC, Health Canada Announce Recall of 4,000 Boots Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Rossignol Ski Co., of Park City, Utah, announced a voluntary recall of about 4,000 pairs of Rossignol Cross-Country Boots--3,000 pairs in the United States and 1,000 pairs in Canada--because the sole could separate from the upper portion of the boot, posing a fall hazard.

This recall involves Rossignol cross-country boots with model X-IUM World Cup Skate, X-IUM World Cup Classic, X-IUM World Cup Pursuit, X-11 Skate, and X-IUM J Skate. The model name is printed on the upper part of the boot. Boots included in this recall have a five- or 6-digit lot number stamped on the right boot under the removable insole.

The footwear was manufactured in Romania and sold by specialty outdoor retailers nationwide for between $140 and $400 (U.S.) and for between $200 and $500 (Canada) from December 2007 through June 2009. Although no incidents or injuries have been reported, CPSC says consumers should stop using the boots immediately and contact Rossignol at (888) 243-6735 to determine if their boots are included in this recall and, if so, receive a free replacement or a refund. Consumers also can visit the firm's Web site at www.rossignol.com or e-mail the company at recall@rossignol.com.
