ECHO Recalling Backpack Blowers

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on February 27, 2012

According to news sources, a recall is being issued by ECHO for its Gas Powered Backpack Blowers after it was discovered that an assembly line mistake could have potentially caused damage to the fuel line connecting the carburetor and the fuel tank, thereby posing a fire hazard to consumers.

The recall affects about 16,000 units and includes those with model number PB-265L and serial numbers P093121 35519 through P093121 50152 and P078110 20732 through P078110 22309. The serial numbers can be located near the gas filler cap on a printed label. There have been no reported injuries to date in connection with the recalled product.

Those with the recalled backpack blower models should stop using them immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a repair if necessary, free of charge. Consumers may also contact the company at (800) 432-3246.

As a personal injury lawyer San Bernardino, I deeply appreciate the ongoing efforts being made to ensure the safety and well being of consumers nationwide. I understand the constant risks posed by defective products and encourage consumers to learn more about recalled products and how to avoid them. As a Ventura personal injury attorney, I hope this information helps keep consumers safe.
