In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Kyodo America Industries Co. LTD has issued a voluntary recall of about 530 LawnBott lawn mowers. The lawn mowers pose a laceration hazard to consumers if the mower is lifted from the ground while the cutting blades are still rotating. Kyodo America has received one report of a consumer receiving minor lacerations when the lawn mower was lifted from the ground.
Manufactured in Italy and sold by Kyodo America dealers from January 2006 through December 2007 for between $1,750 and $2,750, this recall is for robotic lawn mowers with "Evolution" or Deluxe" printed on the side of the red, green or blue mower. Please check the CPSC press release
for more information on the recalled lawn mowers.
Kyodo America has directly contacted consumers who have registered their mower. Consumers who have not registered their lawn mower can contact Kyodo at (877) 465-9636 to schedule a free repair. For more information, visit their website at www.lawnbott.com
