Alltrade recalls Kawasaki cordless drills

Alltrade Tools LLC of Long Beach, CA has issued a recall for about 45,000 Kawasaki-brand cordless drills manufactured in China.

Alltrade, the importer of the drills, has notified the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that the trigger switch on the drill can short circuit and generate excessive heat, posing a burn hazard to consumers. The company has received 33 separate reports of incidents related to the recalled drills, including one report of a minor burn injury.

The recalled drills were sold at Costco stores nationwide from May 2011 through February 2012 for about $50.
