All-Power America is recalling roughly 10,000 All-Power brand single stage snow throwers. Exposure to Chinese gasoline for extended periods of time while testing the product overseas caused the carburetor needle to become corroded and allow fuel to leak, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
The recalled snow throwers are black and yellow and have a red cap on the gas tank. They have a 20 inch wide snow clearing width and an 87cc, 4 cycle engine. The model number 'SB044P' is printed on a yellow and black sticker located on the top of the unit along with the phrase '20 Inch Clearing Width.'
The All-Power snow throwers affected by this recall were sold at Menards Stores and independent hardware retailers from September 2012 through December 2013.
Consumers should immediately stop using their snow thrower and contact All-Power to arrange for a free repair.
