Chevron North America is recalling its EGO Power Brushless Hedge Trimmer (Model HT2410) and instructing consumers to discontinue use of the trimmer immediately. The potentially defective and dangerous product should be returned.
There have been 34 incidents of the trimmer turning itself on unexpectedly and without warning and resulting in some eight lacerations to unsuspecting consumers.
There are at least 85,000 of these units in use in the United States and some 4,000 in Canada.
Anytime a person is injured or killed while using virtually any kind of product (e.g. cars and trucks, tools, equipment, chemicals, clothing, even food) the potential for a products liability action should be considered.
This is one of our specialties.
