The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Honda have announced a voluntary recall of three models of Honda snowblowers. This recall involves approximately 18,500 snowblowers which were sold nationwide from April 2005 through November 2010 for between $2,000 and $3,400. The fuel tank joint and O-ring located on the underside of the fuel tank can seep or drip fuel over time, posing a fire hazard.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled snowblowers and contact any Honda Power Equipment dealer to arrange for a free fuel tank joint and O-ring replacement. Registered owners of the recalled snowblowers will be mailed a notice.
