The lopper handles can break when attempting to cut branches, posing a risk of serious injury and laceration. This recall involves Fiskars Titanium Bypass Lopper shears with model number 6954.

The firm has received 11 reports of incidents involving lopper handles breaking, including reports of bruising and lacerations, some required stitches to the head and face.
