Recall: American Honda Trimmers Due to Laceration Hazard

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on February 28, 2012

According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 14,000 units of Grass Trimmers after it was found that they contained shafts that could potentially crack, causing the cutting attachment to possibly detach.

The company, American Honda Motor Company, announced the recall due to the possibility of a detached cutting attachment posing a laceration hazard to bystanders or operators. The company received 11 reports regarding incidents involving a broken or cracked shaft. To date, there have been no injuries reported. The recalled units include those with model number HHT35SUKAT as well as those with serial numbers in the range of HAHA-1000001 to HAHA-1017345.

The recalled product was reportedly manufactured in the United States.

Consumers should stop using the recalled trimmers and contact their nearest authorized dealer to receive a free inspection and repair if necessary.

As a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer, I appreciate all efforts being made to ensure consumer products are made safer for those who use them. I hope this information can help raise awareness about this recalled product and keep consumers safe. If you or a loved one has been injured through the use or consumption of a defective product, speak with a personal injury lawyer Riverside to learn about the legal options available to you.
