Portable Generators Face Recall Due To Fire Hazard

Champion Power Equipment, in collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), issued a voluntary recall of 8,600 portable generators for a potential fire safety hazard.

The generators that were sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale stores, between December 2011 and July 2012, have a leaky carburetor that could pose a fire risk. There have been 11 reports of fuel leaking from generators, with eight incidents of the generators catching fire and in two cases there has been property damage. However, no injuries were reported.

Two models of Champion Power Equipment portable generators have been recalled. Both of them have a bar handle, two wheels, and a black frame with black and yellow control panels. The associated model numbers are 41332 and 41532.

Consumers are advised to contact Champion Power equipment for a free repair kit to be installed by an authorized dealer. Consumers may also return the recalled product to Costco for a full refund.
