With plenty of snowstorms blanketing the United States, many people are using snowblowers to clear paths.
The products were sold in stores and online by Toro authorized dealers, and Ace Hardware and Home Depot outlets, the release said. They were sold to consumers between November 2020 and January 2021 and retailed for approximately $1,200, the CPSC said.
Toro, based in Bloomington, Minnesota, received five reports of incidents where the snowblower’s auger failed to disengage when the control lever was released, according to the CPSC notice. There have been no reports of injuries.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact a Toro authorized dealer for a free repair, the CPSC said.
Customers can contact the company by calling 833-254-8856 or by using Toro’s online locator tool.
