About 1,500 Sno-Tek snowblowers were recalled due to a laceration hazard. The snow blower's engine is missing a safety shield above the electric starter, which poses a laceration hazard to the user's fingers.
Thankfully there have been no reports of lost fingers.
The units were sold at Home Depot and Ariens for around $700 to $800. If you own one of these snowblowers, stop using it immediately and get in touch with the importer, Liquid Combustion Technology, about a free repair kit or free repair. Their toll free number is (800) 558-5402.
