Sherwin-Williams has voluntarily recalled 76,000 Purdy Scrapers because of a laceration hazard. Consumers should stop using the scrapers immediately unless otherwise instructed, according to a Consumer Product Safety Commission statement on the recall.

The product is the Purdy 2 1/2" 4-Edge Scraper, manufactured by Allway Tools Inc., of Bronx, N.Y., and distributed by Sherwin-Williams.

The scraper's body can break away from the handle when struck against a hard object, posing a laceration hazard to users, the CPSC said,.

Sherwin-Williams has received four reports of the scraper's body separating from the handle. There have been no reported injuries.

The recalled scraper is a 2 ½-inch-wide steel tool with a four-sided edge. The handle has a soft black grip with "Purdy" printed in red letters on the side of the handle.

The scraper was sold at Sherwin-Williams Paint stores, Duron Paint stores, MA Bruder Paint stores, United Paint Stores, Norfolk Paint Stores, Mercury Paint Stores, Old Quaker Paint Stores, Flex Bon Paint Stores and Columbia Paint Stores nationwide from February 2009 through June 2009 for about $9.

Consumers should stop using the recalled scraper immediately and return it to any Sherwin-Williams store or the place of purchase for a free replacement.

For additional information, contact Sherwin-Williams at (888) 304-3769 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at www.sherwin-williams.com.
