About 36,000 Blue Ridge Utility knives, sold exclusively at Target, are being recalled as the utility knife can become unlocked and the blade can protrude only while in the original packaging, posing a laceration hazard.
The firm has received two reports of the blade protruding in the original packaging, both resulting in laceration injuries.
This recall involves the Blue Ridge Utility Knife with a six-inch retractable blade. Model number BR922OU is printed on the back of the package. The knife is silver in color with the Blue Ridge logo printed on it. The packaging is blue and teal with an orange-and-white mountain logo at the top.
Consumers should immediately and carefully inspect the packaging containing the Blue Ridge Utility Knife to determine whether the blade tip is protruding through the package. Carefully remove the knife from the packaging, avoiding the blade tip, and discard the packaging. To apply the repair, secure the knife by retracting and locking the knife in the closed position. Once the knife is removed from the packaging, the knife can be used in typical fashion.
