Gerber pocket knives pulled from the marketplace

Oregon-based Gerber Legendary Blades is recalling about 154,000 Gerber Exchange-A-Blade pocket knives, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The CPSC said during use, the back of the blade can move past the blade support, creating a laceration danger to users.

The company has learned of eight incidents in which individuals cut themselves using the knives.

The recall applies to the Gerber EAB pocket knives with the model numbers 22-41548, 22-41548CDIP, 22-01548W and 22-41548W.

The knives were sold in stores in the U.S. and through online retailers from September 2006 through August 2007 for about $11 US each.

Consumers should stop using the knives and contact the company for replacements.
