The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Craftsman 3-in-1 high-wheel, gas-powered, Push Lawn Mowers equipped with Honda GCV160 engines and a 21-inch deck.

The recalled Mowers have a black engine control/bail lever, engine shroud and deck with 12-inch rear wheels and a gray cloth clipping bag. The Craftsman logo and “GCV 160” are printed on the top front of the engine shroud. “Honda” is on the top of the pull cord housing cover. The Craftsman logo is also stamped into the rear discharge chute cover and printed on the sides of the clipping bag.

The phrases, “Dust Blocker” and “EZ Empty Bag” are printed on the top of the clipping bag. The first six numerals of the serial number are the manufacture date in the MMDDYY format. The recalled Mowers were manufactured between April 2014 (04xx14) and June 2014 (06xx14). The serial number and model number 384531 are on the data plate on the rear of the mowing deck.
