About 200 4-inch air angle grinders have been recalled by Direct Distributors Inc., of Garner, N.C. The spring-loaded safety switch can fail and allow the grinder to turn on even with the safety switch locked in place, posing a finger, hand or other laceration risk. This recall involves 4-inch air angle grinders with model number 20687. The model number is printed on the packaging. The grinders have a blue handle and some models have the ASC logo on the top. The company has received one report of the safety spring failing, resulting in a finger laceration.
The grinders were sold exclusively at Agri Supply stores in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia and online at www.agrisupply.com from January 2015 to April 2016 for about $40. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled angle grinder and return it to Direct Distributors or any Agri Supply Company location for a full refund. Contact Direct Distributors toll-free at 877-564-8669 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online at www.agrisupply.com and click on “Safety Recall Notice” for more information.
