Harris Products Group has issued a voluntary recall for roughly 13,000 welding torch handles sold in the U.S and Canada due to a fire hazard.

About the Welding Torch Handle Recall

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the torch handles can leak oxygen or fuel, posing a fire hazard.

The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the recalled pool pumps immediately and contact Harris Products Group to receive a free replacement.

Description of Recalled Welding Torch Handles
