WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall Wednesday of 19,500 Husqvarna Grass Trimmers and 6,500 Husqvarna Hedge Trimmers.
The CPSC says fuel can leak from the rubber spacer holding the fuel lines in the fuel tank, which poses a fire hazard.Husqvarna has received seven reports of fuel leaking. No injuries have been reported.

The serial number can be found on a black plate on the gear box, which is on the lower portion of the tool.
The recalled products were sold at Lowe's, Sears and Husqvarna dealers and distributors nationwide for between $150 and $320 from May 2011 to January 2012.
