Beach, VA (SafetyAlerts)
- Stihl Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 1,000 chain saws because a missing screw
can cause the chain brake to fail to operate, presenting a laceration hazard to consumers.
The recalled chain saws are model number 019T with serial numbers 249129398 through
249956311. A label on the chain saw reads in part "STIHL" and "model number
019T." The serial number is imprinted on the front of the chain saw. Stihl dealers
sold the chain saws from December 2000 through May 5, 2001 for about $270.
No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should stop using the recalled chain saw immediately and return it to the Stihl
dealer where purchased for repair. For more information, contact Stihl Inc. at (800)
