AirWair International Limited — Dr Martens 1460 Vegan Boots
What are the defects?
The dye used to colour the fabric in the tongue lining of the boot contains traces of the chemical benzidine.
What are the hazards?
Expert authorities classify benzidine as a carcinogen and recommend that exposure be limited. Prolonged and direct contact with the boot lining could expose the wearer to the chemical.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should immediately stop using the boots. Consumers should call Accent Group on 1800 655 154 or email AccentCustomerService@accentgr.com.au to arrange a postage paid satchel to be sent to their address for the return of the boots. Consumers will receive a full refund.
