Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation have voluntarily recalled Milter Saws for laceration hazards posed to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on July 10, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the lower guard can break and contact the blade during use, posing a laceration hazard to users.
“The recalled product is the 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,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Robert Bosch Tool Corporation for a free lower guard replacement kit.
For more information, please contact Robert Bosch Tool Corporation toll-free at (888) 727-6109 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit www.skiltools.com.
