CPSC, NIKE USA Inc. Announce Recall of Jordan Trunner Cross-Training Shoes
WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), NIKE USA Inc., of Beaverton, Ore., is voluntarily recalling about 425,000 pairs of Jordan Trunner cross-training shoes. The models being recalled are the Trunner, Trunner Mid, Trunner Bubble, and Trunner 2000. The shoes have a thin metal strip on the outside of the heel that can protrude from the shoe and form a sharp edge that can cut consumers.
NIKE has received six reports of the metal strip protruding from the Bubble, including five cuts to the lower leg that required stitches; one injury report on the Trunner; and no injury reports on the Trunner Mid or Trunner 2000. The Trunner Mid and 2000 models are included in the recall to prevent the possibility of injury. Models of the Jordan Trunner that do not have the metal heel clip are not included in this recall.
The following chart lists the shoes involved in this recall:
Model Name Model Numbers Trunner Bubble (Men's) 136055-001, 136055-102, 136055-002, 136055-401 (Women's) 833002-141, 833002-101 Trunner 136022 Trunner Mid 136033 Trunner 2000 136039
The model numbers are located on white labels inside the shoe, above the UPC code.
Major athletic shoe and department stores nationwide sold these shoes from July 1999 through July 2001 for between $90 and $125.
Consumers should stop using these cross-training shoes immediately and contact NIKE to receive free replacement shoes. Consumers should call NIKE toll-free at (800) 344-6453 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or log on to the company's website at www.nikebiz.com. In February 2001, CPSC and Nike announced a recall of Jordan Trunner LX and Jordan Trunner 2000 Mid cross-training shoes.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
