MTD Recalls Log Splitters Due to Amputation Hazard

MTD Products Inc., has issued a recall for log splitters due to an amputation hazard.  The US CPSC has announced a voluntary recall for the products listed below.  According to the CPSC, consumers should immediately stop using the log splitters.  The recall includes approximately 26,000 log splitters distributed in the US.

The CPSC reports no injuries to date, but warns that the control handle of the log splitter could fail to automatically return to the neutral position as it should, and could fail to stop the splitting wedge from moving forward, posing a risk of amputation to consumers’ fingers and hands.
