CPSC, Stihl Inc. Announce Recall of Chain Saws

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Stihl Inc., of Virginia Beach, Va., is voluntarily recalling about 3,000 chain saws. Fuel can leak out of the chain saw's tank, which could cause a fire or injury hazard to consumers.

Stihl has received six reports of fuel leakage. No fires or injuries have been reported.

The recalled Stihl chain saws include model number MS 170 and MS 180 C with serial numbers 255120848 through 255122797 and 255739074 through 255741150. The name "Stihl" and the model numbers are located on the starter housing. The serial number is printed on the housing near the bumper spikes. These chain saws were manufactured in Virginia Beach, Va.

Stihl dealers nationwide sold the chain saws from July 2002 through October 2002 for between $180 and $200.

Consumers should stop using the chain saws immediately and return them to the dealer where purchased for a free repair. For more information, consumers can contact Stihl at (800) 610-6677 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or log on to the company's website at www.stihlusa.com
