The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Robert Bosch Tool Corp., has announced a voluntary recall of about 9,700 Bosch Hammer Drills, model number 1191VSR, due to the fact that a risk of injury is posed to consumers if the hammer drill continues to operate after the trigger has been released.
Manufactured in Malaysia and sold at Menards and other hardware retailers and industrial distributors from July 2007 through April 2008 for about $100, the recalled hammer drill is blue and has "BOSCH" printed on its side. Only drills with a serial number that begins with a "7" are included in the recall. Please see the CPSC press release
for more information.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled drill and contact Robert Bosch Tool Corp at (877) 472-0007, or visit www.boschtools.com
