Posted in Community Service, Product Liability
Products manufactured according to substandard standards may inadvertently cause extensive injury or death to its owner, says Alabama liability attorney Keith T. Belt . The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the Bosch SkilSaw® 10-inch compound miter saw. Consumers should stop using the Bosch SkilSaw® 10-inch compound miter saw, with model number 3316 and date codes 111, 112, 201, 202, 203 or 204. The model number and date code are on the lower right side of the name plate located on the motor housing. The SkilSaw logo appears at the top of the upper blade guard and on the dust collection bag. Approximately 22,149 Miter Saws, manufactured in China by Robert Bosch Tool Corporation of Mount Prospect, Ill were sold at Lowe’s Home Centers nationwide and OC Tanner from January 2012 to April 2012. The lower guard can break and contact the blade during use, posing a laceration hazard to users. Consumers should immediately stop using the miter saw and contact Robert Bosch Tool Corporation for a free lower guard replacement kit. For additional information, contact the firm toll-free at (888) 727-6109 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at http://www.skiltools.com/Pages/Home.aspx.
