NEW YORK (AP) — More than 160,000 folding knives made by hunting gear company Gerber are being recalled because the blade can unexpectedly unlock and cause cuts.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said it received six reports of injuries, two of which required stitches.
The 7-inch Cohort Folding Knife was sold for about $30 at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Home Depot and other stores around the country between January 2013 and March 2015. The CPSC said owners of the knife should stop using it and call Gerber Legendary Blades at 877-314-9130 to receive a replacement. Gerber is based in Portland, Oregon.
The CPSC said 150,000 of the knives are in the U.S., and 11,000 are in Canada.
