In 2006, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an important warning: defective snow throwers were causing serious injuries to consumers across the country. In response, MTD Manufacturing announced an immediate recall of their Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, and Yard Machines lines of snow throwers. Hundreds of thousands of products were pulled from the shelves, but many remain in use today.

Snow throwers listed in the recall were sold between July 2004 and March 2006. They were available at many independent hardware stores, as well as the major chains Kmart and Seats. They typically cost between $500 and $800.
According to the CPSC, the problem with these machines lay in their plastic wheel coverings. These coverings have been shown to break without warning, potentially causing injuries such as skin lacerations and broken fingers.
