This recall involves EGO Power+ Cordless Brushless Hedge Trimmer with model number HT2410. Only units with date codes from September 2017 through March 2019 are included in the recall.
The hedge trimmers have a gray, black and green housing, yellow, 24-inch (61 cm) dual-action steel blade, a black loop handle with a green switch trigger in front of the product housing, and rear switch trigger underneath the rear handle. The EGO logo is displayed on one side of the product housing, and the model number HT2410 and manufacturing date code are displayed on the opposite side.
The hedge trimmers are powered by a removable battery and were sold as a bare tool with no battery, or in a combination kit (sold under model number HT2411) with an EGO POWER+ 2.5 Ah battery and a POWER+ 56-volt charger. All units are marked with the model number HT2410.
The rear switch trigger can fail to rebound after being pressed, which can cause the unit to activate unexpectedly, posing a potential laceration hazard.
As of May 10, 2023, the company has received 3 reports of incidents in Canada, and 1 report of laceration. In the United States, the company has received 26 reports of incidents and 8 reports of lacerations.
