Black & Decker Has Reacalled Cordless Electric Lawn Mowers

Towson, MD (SafetyAlerts) - Black & Decker has recalled about 1,300 reconditioned cordless electric lawn mowers. The clips holding the control cable to the handle may be missing, which could cause the blade control device to fail and keep the mower blade running when it should stop. If the blade control device fails, consumers could suffer serious injuries.

Black & Decker has not received any reports of injuries with these lawn mowers. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recalled cordless electric lawn mowers have an orange deck and a charcoal black motor cover. The reconditioned lawn mowers have the model number CMM1000R and date codes between 0043 M.N.D.C. and 0121 M.N.D.C., both of which are located on a silver and black label on the rear door of the mower. The lawn mower has the words "Black & Decker" and "Cordless" on top of the motor cover.

Black & Decker factory stores nationwide sold these lawn mowers from December 2000 through May 2001 for between $145 and $290.

Consumers should stop using these lawn mowers immediately, and take them to a Black & Decker service center for a free repair. For more information or to locate the nearest service center, call Black & Decker toll-free at (866) 229-5570 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

Lawn mowers sold at locations other than Black & Decker factory stores are not included in this recall.
