Generac Generators Recalled for Amputation Hazard

What is the Risk?
According to the recall notice, “an unlocked handle can pinch consumers’ fingers against the generator frame when the generator is moved, posing finger amputation and crushing hazards.”
How Many People Were Injured?
The recalled generators have caused at least 8 severe injuries, including 7 finger amputations and 1 person who suffered a crushed finger, according to Generac.
