Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves All Power brand single stage snow throwers.

The Snow Throwers are black and yellow in color and have a red cap on the gas tank. They have a 20 inch wide snow clearing width and an 87cc, four-cycle engine. The model number of the recalled Snow Throwers is SB044P which is printed on a yellow and black sticker located on the top of the unit with the phrase “20 Inch Clearing Width.”

According to the CPSC, exposure to Chinese gasoline for extended periods of time while testing the product overseas caused the carburetor needle to become corroded and allow fuel to leak, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

The company has received 58 reports of carburetor leaks. No fires or injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately stop using their snow thrower and contact All-Power to obtain a free repair.
