Briggs & Stratton Corp., of Wauwatosa, WI, U.S., working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are recalling about 480,000 Briggs & Stratton OHV Snow Thrower Engines. When the engines are primed, excess fuel can overflow into the carburetor and ignite, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. Briggs & Stratton has received 48 reports of fire but there have been no reports of injury.

The recall includes snow equipment with Briggs & Stratton OHV engines that have model numbers beginning with 12, 15, 20, or 21, and a date of manufacture (DOM) code between 000601xx and 070301xx. The engines were installed on several snow thrower brands: Ariens, Canadiana, Craftsman, Frontier Equipment, Husqvarna, Poulan Pro, Simplicity, and Snapper. The engine model number and DOM information are located on the cylinder shield or rocker cover.  The snow throwers were sold at various snow thrower dealers from June 2000 through February 2007 for between $630 and $2,350 for the snow thrower.

Consumers should immediately stop using the snow throwers and contact Briggs & Stratton to arrange for the free repair.  The toll-free phone number is: 866/478-7855, or consumers can visit the company's Web site at www.briggsandstratton.com.
