Torrance, CA — American Honda Motor Company, Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled grass trimmers in the U.S. and Canada. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on February 28, 2012.
The grass trimmers were recalled after discovering that the shaft can crack and cause the lower gear case and cutting attachment to detach, which poses a laceration hazard to consumers.
“The recalled grass trimmer is made by Honda and has the model number HHT35SUKAT. The trimmer is gas-powered and has a red engine housing with the word ‘Honda’ on the top front and a bicycle handlebar-style grip. A label on the shaft includes the words ‘Honda’ and ‘HHT35S.’ Recalled trimmers are in the serial number range HAHA-1000001 to HAHA-1017345. The serial number is located on the top side of the shaft below the handlebars,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact their local Honda Power Equipment dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair.
