$1 Utility Knives Sold in Louisiana Recalled by Dollar Tree Due to Laceration Hazard

Dollar Tree Stores, Inc., in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, voluntarily recalled approximately 204,000 Tool Bench Utility Knives sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Greenbacks and Deal$ stores nationwide between April 2009 and October 2009. While Dollar Tree has only received one complaint of injury, the utility knife’s blade can slide past the blade support during use, posing a laceration hazard to users. Therefore, users should stop using recalled knives immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund.

The recalled utility knives were made in China and distributed by Greenbriar International, Inc. The knife is black or gray and is about 6 inches long and 1 ¼ inches wide. The package includes an extra blade. “Tool Bench Utility Knife” is printed on the front of the product’s packaging. “975942,” date code “93” and “UPC 639277759429” are printed on the back of the packaging.
