The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with manufacturers Husqvarna Forest and Garden Company announced the voluntary recall of 9,900 lawn mowers.

Recalled models include Husqvarna Royal 53S or ROY53INTEK Walk-Behind Lawn Mowers with serial numbers between 24600001 to 31000205.

Consumers have been advised to stop using the recalled products immediately due to a loose blade bolt that could cause the blade to come loose or the blade adapter to crack, resulting in the blade falling off and potentially injuring the operator. Husqvarna has received 15 reports of blades coming off, 41 reports of loose blades, and one report of a consumer being struck in the toe by a blade.

The mowers were distributed by Husqvarna dealerships and Lowe's Home Improvement Centers from December 2002 through August 2003 for approximately U.S. $500. The outdoor appliances were manufactured in U.K.
