Dewalt Industrial Tool Co. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 44,000 Dewalt DC305 Model Reciprocating Saws. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The switch on these saws can short circuit, posing a fire hazard. The company has received four reports of short circuits in the switch of these saws. One of these incidents was a report of a fire resulting in extensive damage, though the cause of this fire has not been confirmed. Another fire reportedly resulted in minor damage, and the other two incidents resulted in melting damage to the units. No injuries were reported.

This recall involves cordless Dewalt DC305 model reciprocating saws with date codes 200601-49 through 200640-49. They are yellow and black and about 18 inches long. The model number is located on the name plate on the side of the housing and the date code is located under the handle where the battery is inserted.

The products were sold at major home centers and hardware stores nationwide from May 2006 through November 2006 for between U.S. $380 and $800.

Consumers should stop using the saws immediately and contact Dewalt for a free repair.
