More than 26,000 Sun Joe Cordless Lawnmowers are being recalled due to a laceration hazard. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recall notice, the manufacturer Snow Joe is recalling the lawnmowers because the mower blade can detach unexpectedly, posing a danger to users. 

The recall involves Sun Joe cordless walk behind lawn mowers with model numbers 24V-X2-17LM and 24V-X2-17LM-CT. The CPSC’s safety notice includes a list of serial numbers included in the recall. The serial number is found printed on the white label on the ejector flap. 

The lawnmowers were sold between June 2020 and July 2022. Facility managers should immediately stop using the lawnmowers and contact Snow Joe for instructions on repair.  

There have been 31 reports of the blade – or the bolt securing the blade – becoming detached. So far no injuries have been reported.
