Lawn Mower Recall

If you're planning to mow the lawn this weekend, there's a recall you should know about.

11. Lawn Care If you haven’t had a lawn or driveway before, you’ll need to at least buy some tools like a rake, lawn mower or a shovel (again, it depends where live). This can get as expensive as paying for professional landscaping or buying something as pricey as a snow blower.

(WFLA) – If you’re planning to mow the lawn this weekend, there’s a recall you should know about.

Husqvarna is recalling about 235,000 lawn mowers under the following brands: Husqvarna, Poulan Pro, Jonsered, Craftsman, Yardworks, Murray, and Brute. They are walk-behind, gas-powered lawn mowers sold from November 2015 through August of this year. The operator presence control bar can malfunction and cause the engine and blades to continue to operate when they should shut off.

There have been 53 reports of such incidents, but no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the lawn mowers and contact Husqvarna for a free repair. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
