Laceration hazard: Knives recalled

(WFLX) - Thousands of knives are being recalled, because they can cut you!

There's a problem with the locking mechanism on the spring-assisted blade of the Gerber Instant Knives (Model Nos. 30-000435 & 31-001101).

So the blade can "fold" while in use, cutting whoever's holding it.

The knives were sold between February and March at sporting goods stores nationwide for about $50.

You can contact "Gerber" about this recall by logging on to "gerbergear.com".
