Consumer Recalls: John Deere Lawn Tractors + More

There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:

John Deere Lawn Tractors

Deere & Company of Moline, Ill. has issued a voluntary recall of Lawn Tractors and D100 Lawn Tractors because 1) hardware used to hold the mower blade brake assemblies on the mower decks can break. This can cause the mower blades to spin longer than normal after the operator turns off the power, posing a laceration hazard, and 2) hardware used to hold the brake assembly to the transmission housing can break. This can cause the brakes to fail, posing an injury hazard due to loss of control. For a complete description of the tractors involved in these two recalls, go here and here. The affected tractors were sold at 1) John Deere dealers, Lowe’s, and Home Depot stores nationwide from December 2010 through September 2011 for between $1,500 and $2,000 and 2) John Deere dealers, Lowe’s, and Home Depot stores nationwide, except California, from October 2010 through September 2011 for about $1,500.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lawn tractors and contact the company for a free hardware inspection and repair. For additional information, contact Deere & Company at (800) 537-8233 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET Saturday or visit the firm’s website.

Other Recalls

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Thank you for all the recall information you give. I had the stepping stool from Target that was recalled last month. If it wasn't for your site I wouldn't have known that it was recalled and would have went out and bought another one because my kids had been a little rough on ours.

Yikes! We just replaced our Goldstar a few months ago because it wasn't working properly. I always made sure we unplugged it when we weren't home. Wow! Scary.
