In voluntary cooperation with the The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Homelite Consumer Products, Inc. of Anderson, SC, U.S. has recalled its Homelite brand chainsaws.

Although no injuries or incidents have been reported, the saws are said to operate while the engine is at the "idle" setting, posing a risk of serious lacerations to the operator and bystanders.

The recalled chainsaws have model number UT10946 and manufacture dates of November 2002 or December 2002. The model numbers and manufacture dates are printed on the lower corners of a black data label located on back of the chainsaw's engine housing, opposite the on/off trigger. They have a red housing with black trim and are sold in a rectangular black plastic case.

Home and hardware stores nationwide sold these chainsaws from December 2002 through February 2003 for about U.S. $200.

Consumers have been advised to contact Homelite to find the nearest authorized service center for a free throttle adjustment. The stores where these chainsaws were purchased do not provide this service.
