Walmart Recalls Camp Axes Due to Injury Hazard

Walmart is recalling about 246,000 Ozark Trail camp axes.

The axe head can detach from the handle, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Walmart has received two reports of axe heads detaching from the handle resulting in minor cuts and abrasions, the recall goes on to say.

The steel shaft tubular axes measure about 14 inches long from handle to axe head, and weigh about 1.25 lbs. The axes have a black, non-slip rubber grip and claw feature. “Ozark Trail” and model number 60111140 are printed on the product packaging. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled axes and return them to Walmart for a full refund.

The axes were sold at Walmart stores nationwide and online at www.walmart.com from January 2017 through July 2018 for about $8.
