Important Safety Recall

Infants' Faux-Shearling Booties

Dear Valued L.L.Bean Customer,

Our records show that you purchased or received the Infants' Faux-Shearling Booties (BNK1) sometime after July 3, 2006. L.L.Bean has learned that some of the zippers may break during use and become a small-part choking hazard. For the infant's safety, please immediately remove these booties from use.

Although no injuries have been reported, we are aware of incidents of the zipper breaking away from the booties. L.L.Bean is voluntarily working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to recall the booties. Only booties purchased after July 3, 2006, are affected by this recall.

Please return the booties for your choice of a gift card, credit card credit or refund check. Click here for return instructions, or call 800-555-9717 or email us at so we may send you return instructions and materials.

If you purchased this product as a gift, please pass this information on to the recipient or call us at 800-555-9717, and we will send this letter to the gift recipient.

All of us at L.L.Bean are firmly committed to providing our customers with the best in products and service. We regret any inconvenience this has caused; however, the infant's safety is most important to us. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this safety notification.
