RECALL NOTICE - STIHL
b   HANES SUPPLY - RECALL NOTICES

The following is PER LETTER/NOTICE WE RECEIVED FROM STIHL dated May 2011, attached per link below.

RECALL NOTICE FOR CERTAIN STIHL PRODUCTS THAT UTILIZE A TOOLESS FUEL CAP.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR HANES SUPPLY REPRESENTATIVE ASAP.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, STIHL Incorporated is recalling certain STIHL products
that utilize a toolless fuel cap. These products were sold throughout the United States by STIHL Dealers.

THIS RECALL IS FOR SAFETY REASONS!

Specifically, the levels of ethanol, aromatics or other additives in some gasoline sold in the United States may distort parts of the fuel cap, which could make caps more difficult to install and/or remove. If a fuel cap is not properly installed and fuel spillage results, there is a risk of fire if an ignition source is present, which could result in a burn injury to the consumer. STIHL Incorporated has received no reports of injuries at this time.

The toolless fuel caps subject to this recall can be distinguished from a newly designed cap which corrects this problem by a molded identifier mark located on the lever of the cap and also by a letter molded on the underside of the cap. These identifier markings are shown in the example photos below:
