More than 250,000 chainsaws that were sold at Lowe’s are being recalled due to laceration hazards.
On Thursday, Sept. 24, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for:
Kobalt 40-volt Lithium-Ion 8-inch Cordless Electric Pole Saw
Kobalt 40-volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Electric Chainsaw
Both saws have reportedly remained “on” even after the user has tried to have it turned off. Consumers should immediately stop using the saws, the CPSC said.
About 150,000 defective chainsaws and 106,000 defective pole saws were sold in the U.S.
The tools were sold exclusively at Lowe’s from March 2017 to October 2019.
Repairs are being offered for the saws.
