About 1,200 electric lawn mowers are being recalled by Great States Corporation.

The mower can start when the key is not in the starting position, posing an injury hazard to the user. No injuries, however, have been reported.

The recall affects Earthwise cordless electric push lawn mowers with a 17-inch mowing deck. Model number 60517 is on the name plate on the back of the motor cover.

They were sold at Menards stores, Seventh Avenue catalogs and online from January 2014 to May 2014for about $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled electric mowers, remove the battery and contact Great States Corporation for a replacement mower.
