Porter-Cable Recalls More Than 100000 Portable Routers
TOWSON, MD - More than 100,000 Porter-Cable production routers, manufactured between 1990 and April 2014, are being recalled because they pose an electric shock hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has been joined by Health Canada in announcing the recall. CPSC said because the router base handles are not insulated, they pose an electric shock hazard. No incidents or injuries due to electric shock have been reported. According to CPSC, the U.S. recall involves about 100,000 four 3-1/4-horsepower electric fixed-base production routers and one production router. The recall also involves about 7,800 routers sold in Canada. The routers were manufactured by Black & Decker at a plant in Mexico; Porter-Cable was purchased by Black &.
