(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.
