The Timberland Co. announced Friday a voluntary recall for the Timberland PRO Direct Attach Steel Toe Series boots sold nationwide between September 2005 and September 2007.
According to a company press release, product testing has demonstrated that the boots may not comply with applicable safety standards for compression and impact resistance. Although Timberland says people who wear the boots could potentially suffer from an impact foot injury, none have been reported.
This product was sold under model numbers 26002, 65016, 26038, and 38021. The boots were made in the Dominican Republic and have a four-digit date code ending in 35 and beginning with a number from 25 to 45 (e.g., 2535, 2635, ... 4535). Consult the green loop tag inside the boot to determine whether your boots are subject to this recall. Products made in China are not subject to this particular recall.
The company strongly recommends that consumers stop wearing the recalled boots immediately and contact The Timberland Co. to receive a free replacement pair of boots.
