About 130,000 compact snow throwers are being voluntarily recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.
Inspectors found the snow-removal machines, manufactured by MTD Products, pose a risk of injury to the user if the tires are over-inflated.
The company, which said the plastic wheel rims have been found to burst, has received 16 reports of injuries.
The Troy-Bilt and Yard Machines were sold at independent retail outlets, home improvement and hardware stores. The Craftsman brand snow throwers were sold at Sears and Kmart stores. The machines involved in the recall were sold from July 2004 through March 2006 for between $500 and $800 US.
Consumers should contact the company for a free service kit.
