TULSA, Okla. — The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling several items that could cause serious harm to your family.

As we kick off the fall season, you may find yourself outside tidying up those trees losing all their leaves. But before you get to work, make sure your chainsaw is in working order.

The CPSC is recalling Kobalt Cordless Electric Chainsaws sold exclusively at Lowe’s. Experts report the chainsaw can remain in the "on" position, potentially harming consumers.

Cordless Electric Pole Saws, also sold at Lowe’s, are on this week’s recall list.

The device is reported to have a failed switch while under a heavy load. This can cause the unit to keep running after the user releases the trigger, posing an injury hazard. For a repair, contact Hongkong Sun Rise Trading. CLICK HERE to contact Hongkong Sun Rise Trading.
