55,000 Circular Saw Blade Packs Recalled

CPSC said Irwin Industrial Tool Company has voluntarily recalled them because they pose a laceration hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall by Irwin Industrial Tool Company (Huntersville, NC) of 55,260 Classic Series Circular Saw Blade 3-Packs because the blades can fall of the packaging, posing a laceration hazard.

It's illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product, the agency noted. Irwin has received three reports of the saw blades falling out of the packaging, but no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves Irwin Classic Series 10-inch Circular Saw Blade Limited Promotion 3-Packs. "The blister packs contain one 10-inch trim and finish saw blade with 60 teeth (60T) and two 10-inch general purpose saw blades with 40 teeth (40T). The blades are stacked offset in the packs. The packaging is blue, orange and yellow and has the words 'Irwin' and 'Classic Series' on the front top left corner and '3 Circular Saw Blades' on the front lower left corner. Model number 'ICSLD3PK' is located on the front top right corner," according to CPSC.

They were made in China and were sold exclusively at Lowe's stores, nationwide, from October 2011 through November 2011 for $40.

Consumers should contact the firm to receive a free storage container for the saw blades. For more information, call 800-464-7946 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT or visit www.irwinrecall.com.
