Consumers Urged To Inspect Edger/Trimmer Garden Tools
Weed Eater, Inc., Houston, Texas, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), today announced an inspection and replacement program for the "406 Grass Getter", a nylon string edger/trimmer sold exclusively by Montgomery Ward & Co. The electrical insulation on some of the garden tools may have been damaged during shipping and could expose a user to an electric shock. No injuries have been reported.
