MTD Southwest Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 76,000 Troy-Bilt and Craftsman Brand Gasoline Chain Saws. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The chain saw’s plastic front handle can break during operation. If this occurs, the saw would be difficult to control and poses a risk for lacerations. MTD has received two reports of consumers losing control of the saw when the handles broke during use. One consumer reported bruising to his elbow and the other received burns to his fingers after contacting the muffler when the chain saw he was using broke and he lost control of the saw.

These Troy-Bilt and Craftsman brand chain saws are powered by a two-cycle gasoline engine ranging in size from 46cc to 55cc. They are equipped with either an 18-inch or 20-inch bar. There are four Troy-Bilt models affected: 41AY00AR966, 41AY60AR766, 41AY90AR766, and 41AY08AR966. There is one Craftsman Incredi-Pull model affected: a 55cc two-cycle gasoline engine with an 18-inch bar and model number 316.350840. The model number of the chain saw is located on the engine casing.
