If you'll be using a hand truck to move any large items this weekend, there's a recall you need to be aware of. 

Gleason is recalling about 120,000 Milwaukee-branded hand trucks with the model numbers 40615 and 60610.

The wheel's plastic rims can break when the wheels are over-inflated, posing laceration and injury hazards. 

The firm has received five reports of injuries, including lacerations to the face, hand and wrist. 

Home Depot and Lowe's sold the hand trucks in their stores nationwide and on their websites from August 2007 through April 2010. 

Consumers should not use them and contact Gleason for replacement wheels.
