    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.

HOW TO IDENTIFY PRODUCT

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

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
