The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of the 2015 Toro 22-inch Walk Power Mower because of an injury hazard.
According to the CPSC, the mowers, which were manufactured in Mexico, were assembled with an incorrect blade driver and blade combination, which can cause the blade to break, creating an injury hazard.
The 2015 22-inch walk-behind power mower has a red base on four wheels, a black motor and handle, and a white bag attached for catching grass clippings. A black plate on the front of the mower says “Toro Recycler 22.” Model number 20337 and a serial number are located on a decal affixed to the rear of the machine. Recalled mowers have serial numbers ranging from 315000101 to 315000983. The mowers sold for about $450 at hardware, lawn, and garden stores nationwide in February and March 2015. The mowers were also sold in Canada and have been recalled there as well. A total of 800 mowers are recalled in the U.S. and 100 in Canada.
The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the recalled mowers immediately and contact a Toro dealer to schedule a free repair. To date, there have been no reports of injuries.
