About 2,800 Briggs & Stratton riding mowers have been recalled. The chute deflector on the riding mowers and garden tractors can fail to prevent projectiles from being expelled. This poses a risk of injury to consumers from projectiles. This recall involves orange Simplicity brand zero turn riding mowers, mower deck attachments and garden tractors. Mower deck sizes range from 44 to 54 inches. The Simplicity logo is on the side of the mower or garden tractor. The model and serial numbers are located on the frame near the front tires or on the frame rail below the seat. Mowers with a black dot on the label containing the product’s model and serial number are not included in this recall.
The mowers were sold at Briggs & Stratton dealers nationwide from August 2014 through May 2015 for between $3,600 and $16,000. Manufacturer: Briggs & Stratton Corp., of Wauwatosa, Wis. Manufactured in United States. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and contact a Briggs & Stratton dealer to schedule a free repair.
