The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall Tuesday of a Craftsman portable table saw because the foldable stand on which it sits can collapse and cause injury.

There have been 11 reports of the 10-inch saw collapsing during operation and causing injuries to fingers and hands, including lacerations, broken bones, a shoulder strain, and a partial amputation of a fingernail, the CPSC said.

Consumers with the table saws — model number 137.415030 and with certain serial numbers — should stop using the product immediately and get a free replacement stand from manufacturer Rexon. Around 46,000 table saws are affected.

The saws were sold at Sears stores and online between April 2014 and October 2016 and retailed for about $200, the CPSC said.

A list of serial numbers involved in the recall is available at CPSC.gov. Serial numbers can be found on the silver label on the front of the saw.

"The safety of our members and customers is our highest priority and we continuously monitor and test our products with our manufacturing partners to ensure that we meet the high expectations we hold for our brands," Sears said in a statement, USA Today reported. "Based on that testing process, the manufacturer identified a potential concern and chose to voluntarily recall the product in conjunction with the CPSC."

Sears sold the Craftsman brand, which it has owned for several decades, to Stanley Black & Decker in January for $900 million.

Consumers should always take safety precautions when operating electric saws and other home improvement equipment to avoid injuries, Consumerist advised when reporting the recall.
