A popular snow blower is being recalled over a safety hazard as heavy winter storms have been blowing across much of the U.S.
Toro is recalling 6,700 snow blowers because a faulty auger can fail to disengage when the lever is released, posing an amputation hazard, according to a notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
No injuries have been reported, the CPSC said. But five cases of the failure have been reported to Toro.
