About 3000 Gerber Instant Knives are being recalled due to faulty locking mechanisms. The lock can fail during use, leading to the blade folding closed, posing a very serious laceration hazard.
No injuries have been reported yet. Affected models are 30-000435 and 31-001101, and the model numbers are only printed on the knives’ original packaging. These knives were sold between February and March 2012.
If you have one of these knives, stop using it and contact Gerber for a free replacement at (877) 314-9130 between 9am and 5pm PT Mon-Fri.
