Snow throwers are popular lawn maintenance products across the country. Unfortunately, this also means that when these products are dangerously defective, millions of innocent consumers could potentially be affected.
In 2006, MTD Manufacturing announced a recall of several different lines of snow throwers, also known as snow blowers. This recall came in response to a warning issued by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) regarding the plastic wheel rims on certain snow throwers. A large number of the defective products were removed from the market, but many still remain in circulation.
The warning issued by the CPSC announced that the wheel rims on certain snow blowers could burst without warning, leading to serious lacerations on consumers’ hands, feet, and faces. These are among the most dangerous places on the body to injure, as they bleed quickly and are more prone to infection.
The recalled snow blowers were sold under the brand names Craftsman, Yard Machines, or Troy-Bilt. They were sold between July 2004 and March 2006 for $500 – $800. They were available at a number of independent home improvement stores, as well as major chains like Sears and Kmart.
