Stanley Black & Decker is recalling around 211,000 wooden handle nailing hammers due to injury hazards posed by the product. The recall involves the Stanley brand 16-oz. wooden handle nailing hammers, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The molded grip on the hammer can come loose, posing an injury hazard to users of the tool, according to the CPSC.
The recalled wooden-handle nailing hammers were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide from July 2018 through August 2019. The hammers have a metal head and a natural wood handle with a black over-molded grip. "Stanley" is marked on the wooden handle in black and on the steel hammer head.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hammers and return them to the vendor for a refund in the form of gift card for the purchase price, according to the CPSC.
