L.L. Bean has issued a recall for adjustable snowshoes. About 3,000 L.L. Bean Adventure Adjustable Snowshoes 25”-30” and L.L. Bean Adventure Adjustable Snowshoe Package 25”-30” are involved. 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 firm has received four reports of the plastic on the snowshoes cracking. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the snowshoes and contact L.L. Bean for a full refund.
