The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Irwin Industrial Tool Co., has issued a voluntary recall of a promotional 10-inch circular saw blade 3-pack due to laceration hazard posed by defection packaging.
Irwin has received three reports of the saw blades falling out of the bottom of the packaging. No injuries were reported.
The products, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores nationwide from approximately October 2011 through November 2011 for $40. Approximately 55,260 were purchased.
This recall involves Irwin Classic Series 10-inch Circular Saw Blade Limited Promotion 3-Packs. The blister packs contain one 10-inch trim and finish saw blade with 60 teeth (60T) and two 10-inch general purpose saw blades with 40 teeth (40T). The blades are stacked offset in the packs.
Consumers should immediately contact Irwin to receive a free storage container for the saw blades.
