Rocky Brands is recalling about 1,800 pairs of hunting boots that may not protect the wearer's feet from a snake bite.

The recall comes after an incident in which a Rocky Brands contractor was injured by a snake while demonstrating how the boots protect against snake bites.

The recalled boots include a white label on the inside of the shaft with the Rocky logo, product number RKYS153, a date code between 12-14 and 01-15 in the MM-YY format, and the words "Men's 16 Silent Hunter Snake Boot, Camo" below the product number and date code.

They were sold at various retailers nationwide, including Tomlinson's, Bowie Outfitters, and Mossy Oak stores, and online during March 2015 for about $200.

Consumers should stop wearing the recalled boots immediately and contact Rocky Brands for a full refund or a free pair of replacement boots.

Rocky Brands Inc. can be contacted at (866) 245-2159.
