Recall announced for snowblowers, mowers
Some 23,000 Toro Power Clear snowblowers and another 6,200 or so 20-inch Recycler mowers are being recalled.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Toro announced a voluntary recall of the products because the carburetors develop fuel leaks and can ignite when exposed to an ignition source, posing a fire or burn hazard.
No fires or injuries have been reported, but there have been about 500 reports of carburetor leaks.
The products were sold at Toro Dealers in the United States and Canada from September 2009 through March 2011.
