American Honda has recalled more than 18,000 snow blowers because of fuel tank leaks, causing the potential for fires. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission has received 90 reports of seeping or dripping gas from these snow blowers. According to a report by the CPSC, the fuel tank joint and o-ring located on the underside of the fuel tank can seep or drip fuel over time, posing a fire hazard. The snow blowers are red and black. The frame serial number is located on the rear of the machine just below the engine and the model number is located on the side of the front scoop. The effected model/frame serial numbers are:
- HS724 / SZBE-1037913 through 1046577
- HS928 / SZAS-1151080 through 1169012
- HS1132 / SZBF-1018734 through 1025998
