WASHINGTON – WMH Tool Group Inc. of Elgin, IL, is recalling approximately 7,100 Wilton and Performax 10-inch miter saws.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the saw handle’s switch can fail, causing the saw to smoke, spark, trip circuit breakers and disable the safety brake. The saw also can keep operating unless the unit is unplugged, posing a laceration hazard, the CPSC said.

WMH has received reports of six incidents involving the saws, none involving an injury.

The saws, manufactured in China, were sold at hardware stores and home centers nationwide between August 2006 and March 2007.
