The company has received four reports of fuel leaking
Husqvarna has announced a recall for generators due to a safety hazard.
The company is recalling about 600 gas-powered Poulan Pro generators. In the affected models, the carburetor can fail, allowing gasoline to leak, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
Husqvarna has received four reports of fuel leaking. No injuries have been reported.
The generators are designed for residential use. All serial numbers for the affected models are included in the recall. The generator's model number (PP4300, PP6600, PP6600E, and PP7600E) can be found on the front of the fuel tank on the serial number plate. The generators are black and marigold color, measure 21.5" x 26.6" x 21.3" and range from 4.4 to 7.6 kilowatts. The items have two handles and two wheels.
Customers could purchase the generators at Poulan Pro and Husqvarna authorized dealers nationwide from July 2010 through September 2010 for between $600 and $1,000.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled generators and contact Husqvarna to arrange a free repair.
