Chinese-Made Boots Recalled in U.S. over Electric Shock Risk

Boots are Caterpillar brand loggers' boots

Some 9,500 Chinese-made steel-toed boots were recalled Aug. 28 in the U.S. amid fears wearers could suffer electric shock, the consumer protection agency announced. The recall -- the eighth in the U.S. this month of Chinese-made products -- involves Caterpillar brand loggers' boots with steel-tipped toes, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement released with the U.S. manufacturer of the footwear, Wolverine World Wide.

"The recalled logger boots could be incorrectly labeled as resistant to electrical current. This poses a shock hazard to consumers who come in contact with an electrical current," the statement said.

The footwear was sold in both women's and men's sizes between September last year and July, for between $90 and $130 a pair.
