Ohio Product Liability Lawyer on the Ryobi Sheet Sander Recall

In May of 2011, One World Technologies announced the recall of its Ryobi 1/4 Sheet Sanders. In total, almost 300,000 of the company’s sheet sanders were recalled for laceration hazards posed to the consumer. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the product recall after discovering that pieces of the fan can break off from the fan assembly and be ejected from the sander, potentially cutting or injuring the person using it. The recalled product was sold at Home Depot, Gardner, Inc., Tap Enterprises, Inc., Direct Tools Factory Outlets, Amazon.com and ToolKing.com from June 2005 through August 2010 for about $30.

"This recall involves Ryobi brand sheet sanders, model S651D. The sander is blue and black. The word "Ryobi" is on the left side. The model number can be found on the data plate located on the side of the sander just below the handle," reported the CPSC press release.

Although the dangerous tool was voluntarily recalled by One World Technologies and pulled from store shelves almost two years ago, there are still consumers using this product on a daily basis who are unaware of the potential risks involved.

Our Ohio product liability lawyers strongly urge consumers to check with the CPSC Sheet Sander Recall Release to see if your model number is affected and to find out how to handle the recall process.
