Husqvarna recalls lawn and garden tillers due to risk of bodily injury

WASHINGTON (WNCN) – Husqvarna has recalled around 24,000 lawn and garden tillers due to risk of bodily injury.

The tiller’s transmission shift rod and clip can come into contact with the control cable during shifting and cause the tiller to unintentionally move forward or backward, posing a risk of bodily injury and/or laceration.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said consumers should stop using the recalled tillers immediately and return it to the nearest Husqvarna dealer for a free repair.
