The recall involves the SkilSaw 10-inch compound miter saw, with model number 3316 and date codes 111, 112, 201, 202, 203 or 204. The items were sold at Lowes Stores nationwide, as well as OC Tanner from January through April of 2012. To view photos of the recalled items, please visit the CPSC Web site.
