Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves the Leatherman Leap Multi-Purpose Tool that was designed for children aged nine and up.

The recalled Multi-Tool has a green, blue or red plastic casing with two screws, one on each handle of the tool. It consists of combination needle nose and regular pliers, wire cutters, wood saw, ruler, tweezers, soda bottle opener, optional 420HC (high carbon stainless steel) knife blade, scissors, Phillips screwdriver, and small and medium slotted screwdrivers. The words “Leatherman” and “Leap” appear on one side of the Multi-Tool.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, the lock mechanism on the optional knife blade can inadvertently release the blade, posing a laceration hazard.

Consumers should not install the optional knife blade or should immediately stop using the Multi-Tool with the installed optional knife. Consumers should contact Leatherman for a free replacement Multi-Tool, including shipping.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
