==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

These Hilti DHS Gas Cut-Off Saws may have been marketed, distributed and sold in all Canadian provinces, although it is always possible these hardware products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to Health Canada, the Washer on the Screw that secures the Saw Blade does not meet company specifications because fragments of a broken Washer may break away and fly off during operation. If this defect occurs, it can pose risks of laceration, amputation, concussion, bone fractures and/or peripheral nervous system injury to people who utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hilti DHS Gas Cut-Off Saws, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact Hilti to obtain a replacement Screw/Washer Set.
