Timberland Issues Safety Recall on Children's Boots

submitted on January 25, 2010 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
FREE REPLACEMENT INSOLES FOR TIMBERLAND CHILDREN’S 6” CLASSIC SCUFFPROOF BOOTS

The Timberland Company is voluntarily recalling certain insoles used in children’s 6” wheat classic scuffproof boots made in Thailand and sold nationwide between June 2009 and October 2009. Product testing has shown that surface paint on the logo stamped on the footbed of these shoes contains excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. No injuries have been reported.

This product was sold under model numbers 34772, 34872, and 34972.

The product was made in a factory in Thailand and has a four digit date code ending in 56 and beginning with a number from 64 to 68 (6456, 6556, 6656, 6756 and 6856). Only the wheat color is subject to this recall. Products with four digit date codes ending in 89 are not subject to this recall. Products with insoles that do not have the Timberland logo stamp are not subject to this recall. Consult the sewn-in white label inside the boot to determine whether your insoles are subject to this recall.

Consumers should stop wearing the recalled products immediately and contact The Timberland Company toll free at 1-800-445-5545 Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. EST, Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST to receive free replacement insoles.
