CPSC Product Recall: Itasca Fusion Hiker Boots Pose Foot Injury Risks

Roseville, MN — About 5,200 Itasca Fusion Hiker Boots are being voluntarily recalled by C.O. Lynch Enterprises, Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for foot injury risks the boots pose to consumers. The CPSC announced the product recall on August 18, 2011.

The nationwide product recall was issued after discovering that the boots could fail to provide the intended protection against compression and impact, which poses a foot injury risk to consumers. The boots are equipped with hard composite toe instead of steel.

The CPSC reported, Itasca men’s shoes sizes 7 to 14 with the model name Fusion Hikers are being recalled. The model name Fusion, style number 45513 and order numbers 22215, 22216 or 22217 are printed on a label on the underside of the tongue. The word Itasca and the Itasca logo are embossed on the top of the tongue of the shoe and are also imprinted on the removable insole. The shoe is black with leather and nylon upper and a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) outsole. “Steel Toe” is printed on a tag on the outside of the shoe.

Consumers are advised to return the hiking boots to C. O. Lynch to receive a full refund.

For more information about the product recall, consumers can contact Lynch toll-free at (800) 225-2565 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or via email at [email protected]
