Champion Power Equipment portable generators
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a recall affecting two models of Champion Power Equipment portable generators sold at Costco stores due to fire hazards. The CPSC issued the recalls due to fuel leaks from some carburetors posing a serious fire risk. Both Champion Power Equipment models affected by the recall feature a back frame with yellow and black control panels, a bar handle and two wheels. Costco estimates that around 8,600 of the faulty generators have been sold exclusively at their stores throughout the U.S. from December 2011 through July 2012 for around $699. The models affected by the recall include number 41332 and number 41532.
