Honda Recalls Several Generator Models

Heads-up before you head out for Field Day … American Honda has recalled several models of its portable generators. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall affects models EU2200i, EU2200i Companion and EB2200i, colored red or camouflage.

It says the generators can develop leaks from the fuel valve, posing fire and burn hazards, and advises purchasers to take them to an authorized Honda Power Equipment dealer for a free repair. Some 200,000 generators are involved in the recall. More information is available on the CPSC website at<https://tinyurl.com/y3vol9n2>.
