HONDA GENERATOR 2000i SAFETY RECALL ALERT

FYI: Found this article on ConsumersReport.org web page this morning:

American Honda recalls portable generators due to fire and burn hazard
Nov 15, 2012 4:00 PM


American Honda Motor Co. Inc., of Torrance, Calif. has recalled about 150,600 of its gasoline-powered portable generators because the fuel hose can leak, posing a fire and burn hazard.

Honda is aware of four incidents of fuel leaks, but no fires or injuries have been reported.

This recall is for black and red or camouflage designed generators with model number EU2000i and serial numbers EAAJ-2260273 through EAAJ-2485025. They measure about 20 inches long by 11.5 inches wide by 16.5 inches tall. "Honda," "EU converter" and the model number 2000i are printed on the side of the generator. "Companion" is printed on the side of some EU2000i models. The serial number is located on the lower right side, rear corner of the generator.

The portable generators were sold for $1,150 to $1,400 between October 2011 and September 2012 at Honda Power Equipment dealers, Camping World, Gander Mountain, Grainger, Hertz Rental, John Deere, National Pump & Compressor, Northern Tool, Scheels Sporting, Sportsman's Warehouse, Sunbelt Rentals, True Value, United Rentals, White Cap, and Wholesale Sports store, nationwide and online.

If you own one of these recalled generators stop using it immediately and contact the nearest Honda Power Equipment dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. For more information call American Honda at 888-888-3139, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, or visit powerequipment.honda.com/support/recalls-and-updates.
