Briggs & Stratton is recalling around 18,000 riding mowers due to safety concerns, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports.

This recall involves Snapper, Simplicity and Massey Ferguson brand riding lawn mowers. The riding lawn mowers were sold in red/black or orange/black color combinations with a Snapper, Massey Fergusen or Simplicity logo on the hood.

According to CPCS, the reverse-mow option switch can malfunction and allow the riding lawn mowers to unintentionally mow when being driven in a reverse direction, posing a risk of injury to bystanders.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mowers and contact a Briggs & Stratton dealer to schedule a free repair.

Contact Briggs & Stratton at 800-227-3798 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or online at www.briggsandstratton.com. (Click on “Recalls & Warranty” for more information.)
