American Honda recalls lawn mowers for safety hazard

About 167,000 Honda lawn mowers are being recalled because they don't meet U.S. safety standards and may pose a serious laceration hazard to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The recall applies to walk-behind mowers with the model numbers HRB217HXA, HRX217HXA and HRX217HMA, sold in U.S. stores from January 2003 through November 2007 for between $760 US and $900 US.

The lawn mowers were manufactured in the U.S.

No associated injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the mowers and contact a Honda Lawn and Garden dealer for a repair.
