Stanley Black & Decker recalls hammers

Stanley Black & Decker is recalling about 211,000 wooden handle nailing hammers because they pose an injury risk.

The molded grip on the hammers can loosen.

There have no injuries, but the company has received one report of the hammer’s grip coming loose.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hammers and return them to Walmart to receive a refund in the form of a Walmart gift card for the purchase price.

The company can be reached 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 866-215-1132, email or online at and click on "Support" then "Safety Notices and Recalls" for more information.
