Dear Valued L.L.Bean Customer,

The Day Hiker First Aid Kits will now be sold without the iodine prep pads.

This recall does not affect any of the other components in the first aid kit. Products affected were sold beginning August 1, 2009 through May 31, 2011.

As always, our 100% satisfaction guarantee applies. If you are not satisfied with this product for any reason, you may return the kit to us for your choice of a full refund or a gift card.
