In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Shindaiwa Inc., of Tualatin, OR, U.S. has recalled 25,000 gas-powered professional hedge trimmers.

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The heat from the hedge trimmer's muffler can damage the fuel tank, cause a fuel leak and create a fire hazard.

Shindaiwa has received 10 reports of fuel tanks leaking. Two small fires were reported, resulting in minor property damage, but no injuries have been reported.

The recalled trimmers include all single and double-sided gas-powered professional hedge trimmer models DH231 and HT231 with serial numbers 1010000 through 5050000.

The appliances were manufactured in Japan and sold at Shindaiwa dealers throughout the U.S. from January 2001 through April 2005 for between U.S. $389 and $449.
