(Meredith) – Walmart is recalling 246,000 of its Ozark Trail camp axes after discovering the ax heads can detach from the handle, posing an injury hazard.

This recall involves Ozark Trail camp axes. The steel shaft tubular axes measure about 14 inches long from handle to axe head, and weigh about 1.25 pounds. The axes have a black, non-slip rubber grip and claw feature. “Ozark Trail” and model number 60111140 are printed on the product packaging.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled axes and return them to Walmart for a full refund.

Walmart has received two reports of ax heads detaching from the handle, resulting in minor cuts and abrasions.

The axes were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at www.walmart.com from January 2017 through July 2018 for about $8.
