(RNN) – A California company has recalled a brand of boots after a popular post on Reddit revealed the soles left behind swastika prints.

The Reddit user’s post, which was uploaded to Imgur, has received more than 2 million views since Monday.

The Polar Fox boots are made and sold by Conal International Trading Inc. When issuing the voluntary recall, a manager at Conal called the footprint pattern unintentional.

Reddit users encouraged one another to leave Amazon reviews on the Polar Fox boots. It’s unclear if those reviews pressured the company to issue a recall, but the product page for the boots has been removed from the website.

There are several other Polar Fox boots that appear to have the same tread.
