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.
This recall involves All Power brand single stage snow throwers. The 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 of the recalled snow throwers is SB044P which is printed on a yellow and black sticker located on the top of the unit with the phrase "20 Inch Clearing Width."
They were sold at Menards Stores and independent hardware retailers from September 2012 through December 2013 for about $200.
Consumers should immediately stop using their snow thrower and contact All-Power to obtain a free repair.
