BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Some Stihl mowing heads are part of a federal recall because they pose an injury risk.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled mowing head cutting attachments compatible with some models of STIHL-brand trimmers, brushcutters, and clearing saws.

The mowing heads have three orange plastic blades, each attached with a bolt and a nut, a black top housing, and a white bottom housing.
