Defective Camp Axe Recalled by Wal-Mart

Wednesday, October 03, 2018By Richard Alexander and Nina Fulcher

A defective camp axe is being recalled by Wal-Mart because the axe head can detach from the handle, which poses a major injury risk. At this time, approximately 246,000 units are being recalled. The Ozark Trail Camp Axe has a steel tubular shaft that measures about 14 inches long from the handle to the axe head. It weighs about 1.25 lbs., and it has a black, non-slip rubber grip with claw feature. Additionally, “Ozark Trail” and model number 60111140 are printed on the packaging.

Defective Ozark Trail Camping Axe

At this time, there have been two reports of axe heads detaching from the handle. These incidents have resulted in injuries. If you have one of these camp axes, you should stop using it immediately. You can return your axe to Wal-Mart for a full refund. These defective axes were originally sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and online from January of 2017 through July of 2018 for approximately $8.

Reporting an Incident Involving a Defective Product

Whether you were injured by a defective axe or a faulty hover board, it’s important to report the incident to the appropriate channels. It can take weeks, months and even years for recalls to get initiated, but the sooner you report your incident, the better. If you suspect a design flaw or manufacturing defect caused your product to malfunction and injure you or a loved one, you need to contact the Consumer Product Safety Commission and file a report. You also need to contact the product’s manufacturer and report the incident to them.

When to Contact an Attorney

After any kind of injury caused by the negligent or dangerous actions of another person or corporation, it’s important to speak with a lawyer. In cases involving defective products, it’s a good idea to speak with a Personal Injury lawyer who has proven product liability case experience about your incident. Call us. There is no charge.
