Harbor Freight recalls chainsaws

Portland, One Stop Gardens and Chicago Electric 14-inch chainsaws have been recalled do to a problem with the on/off switch.

A national discount tool and equipment retailer issued a recall Monday for more than 1 million electric chain saws after receiving reports that some models continued running even after being turned off, exposing unsuspecting users to potentially serious injuries.

The recall: 1,020,000 Harbor Freight chain saws.

The company says it has received 15 reports of chainsaws continuing to operate after being turned off.

This has resulted in three laceration injuries, according to officials.

The affected products have the brand names Portland, One Stop Gardens, and Chicago Electric 14-inch electric chainsaws.

For all three brands, the model numbers affected are 67255 and 61592.

The Chicago Electric features a red and black chainsaw with "Chicago Electric" on the handle.

All recalled chainsaws were sold with a black blade guard and have the model number printed on a lable on the bottom of the saw.

Consumers should stop using the recalled chainsaws and return them to their local Harbor Freight Tools store for a free replacement.

The defective items were sold at Harbor Freights stores and online May 2009 through February 2018 at a price of $50.

Harbor Freight is offering replacements instead of refunds, which will be available starting May 21.
