About 18,500 American Honda snowblowers have been recalled due to a fire hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The affected snowblowers have a faulty fuel tank joint and o-ring on the underside of the fuel tank that can seep or drip fuel, posing the fire risk.
Although Honda has received almost 100 reports of leaking fuel there have been no fires reported, which is a good thing, particularly given the use this army of snowblowers no doubt saw over the past few days.
If you own an American Honda snowblower, be sure to check out the CPSC recall page for model and serial numbers. Additional information can be found on the Honda’s website at www.hondapowerequipment.com.
