Nearly 1.4 million saws recalled after multiple laceration injuries

A maker of power tools and hand tools on Thursday issued a recall for nearly 1.4 million saws after reports of consumers being cut when using the product.
DeWALT issued the recall for the 12-inch cross-cut miter saws after the company learned that the rear guard can crack or come loose, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The flaw can result in users or bystanders being hit by projectiles, and could also pose an injury hazard to anyone who comes in direct contact with the blade.

A notice on the CPSC website states that consumers should stop using the recalled saws immediately and contact DeWALT for information on purchasing a free repair kit or taking their saw to a service center for a free repair.
The agency says the DeWALT has received 571 reports of the rear guard or components breaking or loosening, including nine reports of lacerations.
The product was sold between April 2019 and May 2022 at Lowe's, Home Depot and hardware stores across the country, as well as on Amazon and other websites. Another 118,600 saws were sold in Canada.
