Portable generators sold at Costco recalled over fire risk

LOS ANGELES

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said fuel can leak from the carburetor, causing a fire. The company said 8,600 units were sold exclusively at Costco from December 2011 through July 2012 for about $699.

This recall involves two models that have a black frame with black and yellow control panels, a bar handle and two wheels. The model numbers are 41332 and 41532.

Consumers should stop using the recalled generators. The products may be returned to Costco for a full refund.
