Dewalt Industrial Tool Co. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 81,000 Dewalt Model DW660 Cut-Out Tools. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The cord wire in these units could be damaged internally, posing a shock hazard to consumers. The company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to this issue.

These cut-out tools are yellow and black, and have model number DW660 written on their nameplate, which is located on the body of the unit. The recalled tools were manufactured between January 2006 and September 2006, and have date codes ranging from 200601 to 200639. The date code also is located on the tool’s nameplate. Units with a “V” stamped on the nameplate are not included in this recall.

The tools were sold at major home center and hardware stores nationwide from January 2006 through November 2006 for between U.S. $70 and $130, depending on the kit.

Consumers should stop using the cut-out tool immediately and contact the company for the location of the nearest service center to receive a free inspection and repair, if necessary.
