Stanley Black & Decker, one of the world’s largest tool manufacturers, recently issued a recall of over two million sledgehammers due to a potential safety hazard. The recall was issued after the company received reports of the hammer head becoming detached from the handle, which can result in serious injuries.
The affected products were sold under the Stanley brand name and were manufactured in China between 2009 and 2012. The sledgehammers were sold at major home improvement and hardware stores across the United States, including Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Amazon.

This recall is a reminder of the importance of product safety and the responsibility that manufacturers have to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use. Stanley Black & Decker has taken swift action to address the potential safety hazard and to protect its customers.
