L.L. Bean is announcing a recall of approximately 3,000 snowshoes and snowshoe packages. The plastic material on the snowshoes can weaken and break during use, posing a fall hazard to users.

This recall involves the L.L. Bean Adventure Adjustable Snowshoes 25"-30" and L.L. Bean Adventure Adjustable Snowshoe Package 25"-30". The recalled snowshoes have an aluminum frame with Boa bindings and a deck made from polyethylene with ADVENTURE ADJ 25-30 printed on the side and L.L. Bean printed on the front. They were sold in red (Carbon Chili) and blue (Glacier/Teal) and can be worn with men's or women's winter boots. The recalled snowshoe package includes the recalled snowshoes, adjustable snowshoe poles and a bag.

The company has received four reports of the plastic on the snowshoes cracking thus far. No injuries have been reported in connection with this recall to date.

Consumers should immediately stop using the snowshoes and contact L.L. Bean for a full refund.

The affected snowshoes were sold at L.L. Bean stores nationwide, L.L. Bean catalog and online at llbean.com from November 2016 through February 2017 for about $170 for the snowshoes and $200 for the snowshoe package.
