Gerber Legendary Blades has issued a recall for their EAB (Exchange-A-Blade) Pocket Knives which use a standard replaceable utility knife blade. During use, the back of the blade of the knife can slide past the blade support, posing a laceration hazard to consumers. Gerber has received eight reports of individuals cutting themselves while using the knife, including several individuals who required stitches. Owners of these knives should quit using them immediately.
The recall notice can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission site. Owners should contact Gerber to arrange for return of the defective knife and a free replacement.
