Toro Recalls Snow Blowers

Snow Blowers Recalled by The Toro Company Due to Potential Fire Hazard
Snow Blower Recall
The Toro Company is recalling about 38,000 snow blowers sold in the United States and Canada. Exposure to ethanol in gasoline can cause the carburetor needle to become corroded. A corroded needle can stick in the open position and allow fuel to leak from the carburetor, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Toro has received 2,200 reports of carburetor leaks. No fires or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Toro® Power Clear 180 Single Stage snow blowers. The recalled snow blowers have model numbers 38272 and 38282. Serial numbers included in the recall range from 310000001 through 310999999. The model and serial number can be found on a decal on the lower right side of the snow blower.

The snow blowers, made in the United States, were sold at Toro dealers and The Home Depot stores nationwide from November 2009 through May 2010 for between $400 and $440.

Consumers should immediately check to see if their snow blowers are included in this recall and contact an authorized Toro service dealer to arrange a free repair. To obtain the location of the nearest dealer, consumers should contact Toro.

For additional information, contact Toro toll-free at (877) 738-4440 between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.toro.com.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
