Stanley Black & Decker is recalling its 16-ounce wooden hammers sold exclusively Walmart stores nationwide, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The CPSC announcement says the recalled hammer is the “16 oz. wooden handle nailing hammers with model number STHT51454 etched below the STANLEY logo on the steel hammer head. The hammers have a metal head, 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. The UPC code for the product is 076174514544 and is located on a label on the handle.”
The hammers were sold July 2018 through August 2019.
The injury hazard that caused the recall is that the molded grip on the hammer can come loose.
The CPSC said to stop using the hammers and return them to Walmart for a gift card refund.
