John Deere lawn mowers recalled

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of John Deere mowers with foot lift option due to an injury hazard.

About 6,450 John Deere EZtrak Zero Turn lawnmowers were manufactured by Deere & Co. of Moline, Ill., and sold nationwide -- except in California -- from February 2009 through September 2010 for about $5,300.

The BM22809 Premium Foot Lift Kit, sold separately from mowers for about $80, is also being recalled, the commission said.

A bolt on the steering lever can catch on the tab of the foot lift stop and lock in place, the commission said. This can stick the steering lever in a forward position, which poses a risk of injury to users.

The recall involves numerous models of Z445 riding mowers with 54-inch-high decks and 7445 or 7465 Zero-Turn Mowers with Premium Foot Lift features.

Consumers were advised to stop using the mowers and contact a John Deere dealer to have the lift stop bracket removed.

Consumers can call 800-537-8233 for information.
