Anybody know why at swap shops and flea markets sell used/like new Craftsman chainsaws having a big X scratched out the name on the sticker?

I was at the swap shop and flea market this weekend and I saw about a hundred Craftsman chainsaws 16”, 18” & 20” for sale. The average price was about $60-$80.

The one thing they all had in common was that an X was scratched through the Craftsman stickers. I didn’t buy one.

Tonight I tried to google why they had the X scratch. I read that the same red models had recalls for possible fire issues from the gas lines.

So where did the scratches come from? Is that the recalled ones?
