STIHL has issued a recall for about 8,000 battery-powered hedge trimmers due to a malfunction which poses a laceration hazard.

About the Hedge Trimmer Recall

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported that the hedge trimmers can operate faster than normal and continue to run after the trigger has been released which is a danger to consumers.

STIHL has noted seven instances where the trigger did not work properly.

The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using this product immediately and contact STIHL for a free replacement.
