HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - More than 277,000 lopper shears made by Fiskars have been recalled due to a laceration hazard.
The shears, which are sold exclusively at the Home Depot, can break when the user attempts to cut branches, posing a risk of serious injury.
This recall involves Fiskars Titanium Bypass Lopper shears with model number 6954. The lopper shears have 32-inch dark orange steel handles and black rubber grips with a gray strip.
Plastic gears connected to the pruning blades allow the consumers to open and close the pruning blades by moving the handles. "FISKARS" is printed on one handle and product identification information, including model number 6954, is printed on a label on the opposite handle above the barcode.
If you own a pair of the recalled shears, call Fiskars directly at 1-855-544-0151 or visit their website for more information.
