In 2006, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning about the dangers of certain defective snow thrower wheel rims, leading to a recall by MTD Manufacturing. Although the recall removed hundreds of thousands of units from the market, but many more potentially dangerous units are still in circulation.
The plastic wheel rims on affected Craftsman, Yard Machines, and Troy-Bilt snow throwers or snow blowers may suddenly and unexpectedly burst, leading to fractures and lacerations on the hands, feet, and face.
