Husqvarna Grass and Hedge Trimmer Recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of Husqvarna Grass and Hedge Trimmers because of a fire hazard. The company is offering a free repair to fix the problem.

Around 19,500 grass trimmers and 6,500 hedge trimmers are involved in the recall. The problem is that a rubber spacer around the fuel lines in the fuel tank could leak causing a possible fire. Husqvarna received seven reports of the fuel leaking, and no injuries were reported.

The grass and hedge trimmers were sold nationwide at Lowes, Sears, and Husqvarna dealers for around $150 to $320. They were sold to consumers between May 2011 and January 2012.

Only the Husqvarna Grass Trimmer Model 122C with serial numbers between 2011 17 00001 to 2011 52 99999 are recalled. The model number can be found on top of the tool. The serial number is located on the bottom of the muffler side of the tool and is on a black plate.
