USCPSC issues generator recall
Portable generators distributed by American Honda Motor Co., of Torrance, Calif., are the subject of a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recall.
While no fires or injuries have been reported, the generator's fuel hose can leak, posing fire and burn hazards, according to the CPSC.
The generators were sold at Honda Power Equipment dealers, Camping World, Gander Mountain, Grainger, Hertz Rental, John Deere, National Pump & Compressor, Northern Tool, Scheels Sporting, Sportsman's Warehouse, Sunbelt Rentals, True Value, United Rentals, White Cap and Wholesale Sports store nationwide and online from October 2011 through September 2012.
The Honda gasoline-powered portable generators are black and red in color or have a camouflage design. "Honda," `'EU converter" and the model number 2000i are printed on the side of the generator, according to the CPSC. "Companion" is printed on the side of some EU2000i models.
About 150,600 of the generators were sold.
