In 2006, MTD Manufacturing announced a recall of snow throwers sold under the brand names Yard Machines, Craftsman, and Troy-Bilt. This recall was in response to a warning issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) concerning the plastic wheel rims on these products. Stores pulled thousands of these products off their shelves; unfortunately, many more remain in people’s homes and businesses.
Racine defective product lawyers Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, care deeply about consumer safety and have been following this case in detail. For more detailed information about the makes and models that have been recalled, call our offices at 800-242-2874.
According to the recall notice and the CPSC report, the wheel rims on affected snow blowers have been known to suddenly burst. This has caused a variety of injuries to consumers, including skin lacerations and broken fingers. Even when they are relatively mild, injuries of this nature can cause serious complications for victims, including deforming scars, nerve damage, and dangerous infections.
The snow throwers named in the recall were market by Craftsman, Troy-Built, and Yard Machines from July 2004 to March 2006. They typically cost between $500 and $800. They were available in many independent stores as well as the national chains Kmart and Sears.
If you own a snow thrower, you should check right away to see if it is one of the affected products. If you have already been injured by one of these machines, contact a Racine defective snow thrower lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights. There is a statute of limitations on defective product claims, so it is important not to delay the process.
