(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of some of the Champion Power Equipment gas powered portable generators because they could catch on fire. The generators were sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale stores nationwide between December 2011 and July 2012 for about $699.

Champion Power Equipment, of Santa Fe Springs, California, announced the recall after 11 reports of fuel leaking out of the carburetor. Of these reports, eight generators caught on fire and two reported property damage.

Around 8,600 of their portable gas powered generators are involved in the recall. Two models have been identified as being problematic – model numbers 41332 and 41532. Both units have a black frame with a yellow and black control panel, a bar handle, and two wheels.

Model number 41332

The words "8250 starting watts" and "6500 running watts" are printed on the side fuel tank of model number 41332. The words "Champion Power Equipment" are printed on the control panel. The serial number and model numbers can be found on the side of the generator that has the handle. See the list below for the recalled serial numbers.
