MTD is recalling about 5,000 Craftsman lawn mowers sold at Lowe’s stores because sharp objects can pierce through the collecting bag during use and strike a user or bystander.
This recall involves Craftsman M350 walk-behind, gas-powered lawn mowers with model 12ABR2BK793. The 23-inch mowers have a black collecting bag. The model number and date of manufacture 01/2019 can be found on a label located on the rear discharge door.
The mowers were sold in January and February for about $400.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said people should immediately stop using the recalled mowers and contact an authorized Craftsman Service Center to arrange for a free repair. MTD is contacting all known purchasers directly.
