Proline branded Circular Chained Saw Blades, 115 mm (~4.5 inches) in diameter sold with a product code of 86011 and a barcode/EAN of 5903755860118. This recall alert was submitted by Slovenia to the EU Safety Gateway under alert number A11/00003/22.

These Proline branded Circular Chained Saw Blade products are marketed, sold and delivered as multi-toothed metal blades to be affixed to electrically powered angle grinders. Each Saw Blade is gray in color with red and white trim printing and were sold at retail and on the Web.

Please note: although these Saw Blades are also available in larger sizes of 125 mm with a model number of 86012, and 230 mm with a model number of 86023, neither of these Saw Blades is currently included in this recall.

No item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Proline branded Circular Chained Saw Blade products include the reported finding that the Chained Saw Blade may be mounted on an Angle Grinder and may therefore, against its intended use, be used as a Hand-Held Circular Saw.

As a consequence, this reported defect could cause kickback or loss of control over the Proline branded Circular Chained Saw, resulting in laceration, amputation, eye damage, traumatic brain injury (“TBI” or “concussion”) and/or other injuries when used in a manner expected with its intended design and possible use.
