Sears Roebuck & Co. yesterday announced the recall of its 22-inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer because of a manufacturing defect in the plug assembly, which could cause a shock.
Meanwhile, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced yesterday that the maker of Revco-brand spray windshield de-icer is recalling 47,000 cans of the product because holes found in some cans of the product can allow the contents to leak or spray out. Some consumers have complained of being sprayed in the face, the manufacturer said.
About 400 of the defective trimmers were sold at $65 apiece last December and January from Sears outlets nationwide. The problem was corrected in February and the trimmers on sale now have no defects, Sears said.
Consumers who purchased trimmers with model number 315.796640 and the data codes B4322, B4329 and B4336 should return them to their nearest Sears store, where the defective trimmers can be exchanged for safe models, Sears said.
Consumers who need additional information can call Singer Co., which manufactures the trimmers, at 1-800-845-4781 or the Consumer Product Safety Commission at 1-800-638-2772. The teletypewriter number for the hearing-impaired is 1-800-638-8270.
The recalled cans of de-icer are Revco brand made last October through December. They have a blue and white label printed on the metal can. Cans with paper labels are not involved in the recall.
The recalled cans have the following codes stamped on the bottom: 2084 1GED, 2094 1GED, 2104 1GED, 2104 2GED, 2114 1GED, 2194 1GED or 2484 1GED.
