34,500 lawnmowers are being recalled from around the United States by the Bloomington, Minnesota-based Toro Company because of a possible injury threat posed to users. The recall pertains to 30-inch Toro TurfMaster and TimeMaster mowers of the 2013 model year. The blades on these mowers are in danger of breaking while the mower is being used, and when that occurs, they could do harm to anyone nearby at that time. While ten incident reports have been filed, those thankfully did not lead to any injuries. Available from dealers between last November and this past October, the mowers should not be used until such time that the owners are able to obtain no-cost repairs from Toro.
