The recall affects four brands sold at Home Depot, Rona, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware and other retailers between July 2004 and March 2006.

More than 15,000 snowblowers have been recalled in Canada due to possible bursting plastic wheel rims, which could cause a "risk of lacerations and fractures". 

The recall affects four brands sold at Home Depot, Rona, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware and other retailers between July 2004 and March 2006, which include: MTD Yard Machines, Troy-Bilt, Yard Machines and Yardworks. 

 As of Dec. 17, the manufacturer (MTD Products Ltd.) had received 36 reports of injuries in Canada.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact MTD for a free set of replacement wheel rim assemblies made of steel.
