DEWALT Recalls Cordless Reciprocating Saws for Fire Hazard | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission , in cooperation with DEWALT, recently announced a voluntary recall of DEWALT DC305 Model Reciprocating Saws.  Consumers should stop using this product immediately unless otherwise instructed.  The recall states that “the switch on these saws can short circuit, posing a fire hazard.”  The announcement also states that: “DEWALT 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.”

Please review the Safety Commission’s press release for additional information.  If you have any questions concerning this topic, please email the attorneys at Regan Zambri & Long or call us at (202) 463-3030.
