About several hundred Black+Decker table saws sold exclusively at Walmart stores are being recalled, due to a risk that the included stand may collapse, which could pose a major injury risk if it occurs while the table saw is in use.
The portable table saw recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on March 31, impacting approximately 400 Black+Decker 10-inch table saws with model number JT2504BD.
While there are no reported injuries due to problems with the Walmart Black+Decker table saws, the CPSC warns that the risk of the stand collapsing unexpectedly could cause both laceration and injury hazards for operators.
The recalled table saws sit on a black metal foldable table stand, and have Black+Decker and JT2504BD printed on the front right side.
The table saws were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide, and on Walmart.com for about $190, from February 2016 through August 2016. They were manufactured in China by Rexon Industrial Corp. Ltd. of Taiwan, and distributed by Walmart, based in Bentonville, Arkansas.
While the CPSC is not labeling it a recall expansion, a similar table saw recall was issued in early March, impacting about 45,000 table saws carrying the Craftsman label. Those were sold at Sears, and had either a similar or identical Rexon table saw stand.
That recall came after 11 reports that the portable stand had collapsed, with nine reports of injuries, including broken bones, hand and finger injuries, lacerations, a shoulder strain, and one injury resulting in a partial finger amputation.
The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the recalled table saws and contact Rexon for a free replacement stand by calling 866-934-6360 or by visiting the company’s website at www.rexon.net and clicking “Safety Information.”
