During a demonstration gone wrong, a snake (species unknown) actually bit through a pair snake-protective boots leading to the Rocky Boot recall.
Rocky Brands Inc., of Nelsonville, Ohio asked the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall about 1,800 pairs of the Rocky “Silent Hunter” Rubber Snake Boot after a demonstration gone wrong.
“The recalled boots are 16-inch tall rubber hunting boots sold under the Rocky brand name. The recalled boots have a camouflage pattern on the outside of the shaft and foot,” the CPSC said in a statement.
The company is offering to refund customers’ money or to replace the boots with another style that hasn’t failed the snake bite test.
No details have been released on when or where the incident occurred, but Rocky has acted and is looking to resolve the issue with this product line.
