Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain black leather upper, 5-inch high, Taurus branded Safety Shoes and sold with a style number of 5001.

  • The recalled Taurus branded Safety Shoes have a white rectangle “Omega” logo and the shoe tongue has a green CSA triangle logo, indicating safety certification. The style number is located on the Shoe’s box packaging, not on the shoes themselves.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Safety Shoes can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, the steel plate used in the manufacturing of these Taurus branded Safety Shoes is not certified to the CSA standards indicated by the tagging on the Shoe. This poses a impact, puncture and bone fracture hazards if the wearer relies on the certification claimed on the Shoe.
