Gerber Legendary Blades, a division of Fiskars Brands Inc., agreed to pay $2.6 million to settle allegations it knowingly failed to immediately report to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) a safety hazard associated with Fiskars’ Gator Combo Axe. According to the government, beginning as early as 2005 and continuing over the next several years, Fiskars received but failed to report consumer complaints and warranty claims indicating the knife fell out of the Axe handle while the Axe was being used to chop, pound or hammer, causing serious injury to users.DOJ
