Lead in Logo Prompts Timberland Boot Recall

Timberland recalled about 21,000 pairs of its Classic Scuffproof boots for children because the logo stamped onto the boots' insoles contains excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.  No injuries or incidents have been reported.

 

The boots were sold June 2009 through October 2009 for between $50 and $70. The boots are wheat-colored leather and were sold in toddler size 4 through junior size 7. Model numbers 34772 34872 and 34972 and manufacturer/date codes 6456, 6556, 6656, 6756 and  6856 are included in this recall. The model and manufacturer date code numbers are printed below the size on a white tag inside the boots.
