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.

Toro is recalling involves model year 2021 Toro Power Max 826 OHAE Snowthrowers over an amputation hazard.
