July 23, 2001NIKE USA Inc. Recalls Jordan
Trunner Cross-Training Shoes
Denver, CO (SafetyAlerts) - Beaverton, OR NIKE USA
Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 425,000 pairs of Jordan Trunner cross-training shoes.
The models being recalled are the Trunner, Trunner Mid, Trunner Bubble, and Trunner 2000.
The shoes have a thin metal strip on the outside of the heel that can protrude from the
shoe and form a sharp edge that can cut consumers.
NIKE has received six reports of the metal strip protruding from the Bubble, including
five cuts to the lower leg that required stitches; one injury report on the Trunner; and
no injury reports on the Trunner Mid or Trunner 2000. The Trunner Mid and 2000 models are
included in the recall to prevent the possibility of injury. Models of the Jordan Trunner
that do not have the metal heel clip are not included in this recall.
The following chart lists the shoes involved in this recall:

Major athletic shoe and department stores nationwide sold these shoes from July 1999

Consumers should stop using these cross-training shoes immediately and contact NIKE to
