Snow Joe is recalling more than 26,000 of its Sun Joe cordless lawn mowers in the United States and Canada because the mower blade may come off unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard.
The company released the recall notice September 1 on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
The recall applies to Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM and 24V-X2-17LM-CT cordless lawn mower models, whose blades may come off unexpectedly.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lawn mowers and contact Snow Joe for instructions on how to determine if their lawn mower is included in the recall and, if so, instructions on how to inspect and secure the lawn mower blade,” the recall reads.
About 26,300 mowers are recalled in the United States and about 350 in Canada.
According to the recall, the company has received 31 reports of the blade or blade securing bolt coming off on recalled lawn mowers. No injuries have been reported so far.
The company is not currently facing any legal action for the recall, but Top Class Actions is closely monitoring the recalls as they sometimes end in class action lawsuits.
Sun Joe lawn mowers have been sold nationwide
The mowers were sold online at www.amazon.com, www.homedepot.com, www.walmart.com and www.snowjoe.com and in hardware, electronics and department stores nationwide from June 2020 through July 2022 between $190 and $350.
They can be identified because Snow Joe is printed on the side of the mowers and on the mulching bag.
The recalled 48-volt mowers have a cutting width of 17 inches. They are light green and black in color, measure 44 inches high by 19.5 inches wide, and weigh approximately 35 pounds. The model and serial numbers are located on the white label on the ejector flap.
The news comes after MTD Products Inc. reminded Craftsman 30″ Mini and Troy-Bilt TB30 lawn mowers that may pose a risk of a low speed accident after failing to brake.
