CPSC, Lawn-Boy Announce Recall of Walk-Behind Mowers
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Lawn-Boy Inc., of Bloomington, Minn., is voluntarily
recalling about 36,000 Lawn-Boy walk-behind mowers. The vendor who
manufactured the mulch plates for Lawn-Boy used the wrong material,
making the plates brittle and easy to crack or break if struck by a
stone or stick while mowing. Objects coming through a broken plate or
pieces of the plate could possibly injure the operator or bystanders.
Lawn-Boy has received five reports of broken mulch plates. No
injuries or property damage have been reported.
The recall includes 21-inch Lawn Boy Easy Mulch Silver, Silver Pro
and GoldPro Series walk-behind lawn mowers. The mowers have the words
"EASY MULCH" printed on the top of the mulch cover plate in bold black
letters. A model and serial plate is located on the right rear of the
Lawn-Boy dealers, department and home center stores sold the
mowers nationwide from February 2002 to August 2002 for between $250 and
Consumers should stop using these mowers in the mulching mode
immediately and contact Lawn-Boy to receive a replacement cover plate.
For more information, consumers can contact Lawn-Boy toll-free at (866)
336-5207 between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, 8:30
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
