USA: LaCrosse Footwear Recalling 8,400 Work Boots
Footwear company LaCrosse Footwear Inc is recalling 8,400 of its Polar and Trailblazer work boots due to a defect of their protective toecaps.
In a press release on Wednesday, the Consumer Products Safety Commission said that the toecaps may not provide sufficient impact and compression protection which could result in crushing, bruising, or other injury to the wearer's foot.
However, no injuries have yet been reported from wearers.
The Chinese-made boots were sold between June 2002 and July 2004 and cost between $67 and $110.
LaCrosse's products are sold nationwide to catalogue merchants, retailers, wholesalers, and the US government, as well as through a joint venture in Japan.
