Sears, the manufacturer Positec Power Tools (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a hazard warning of about 308,000 Craftsman Circular Saws.

The “Craftsman” logo label located on the upper blade guard can become partially detached and interfere with the proper operation of the lower blade guard, exposing the saw’s blade and posing a laceration hazard to consumers. Sears has received two reports of incidents and injuries. The blade guard caught on the label with one incident resulting in an injury to the user that required 12 stitches.

The recall involves a 7-1/4-inch circular saw. The model numbers included are: 172.108550, 172.108560, 172.108650, and 172.108660. The model number is located on the circular saw’s upper motor housing. Model numbers 172.108560 and 172.108650 have a gray body housing and a gray blade guard. Model numbers 172.108550 and 172.108660 have a black body housing and a gray blade guard. “Craftsman” is written on the label on the upper blade guard.
