NEW YORK (AP) -- Thousands of Chinese-made grass and hedge trimmers are being recalled due to fuel tank leaks.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday that trimmers made by Husqvarna Machinery Manufacturing Co. Ltd. have been found to leak between the fuel line and the tank. No injuries have been reported.

The commission says the trimmers should be returned to the place of purchase for a free repair. The recall includes about 19,500 grass trimmers and 6,500 hedge trimmers that were sold from May 2011 to January 2012.

The recall covers the Husqvarna Grass Trimmer, Model 122C, with serial numbers ranging from 2011 17 00001 to 2011 52 99999. It also covers hedge trimmers, models 122HD60 and 122HD45, with serial numbers ranging from 2011 17 00001 to 2011 52 99999.

    Even a Swedish company has their products which are sold in the U.S. made in Red China! I've written to all three of my Washington members of Congress about shutting the door on Red Chinese made "goods" for a couple of years now and have recieved not a single reply on the matter. Not only would barring China's "goods" greatly reduce contaminated and dangerously defective products, it would be THE major factor for our economic recovery with many of the jobs coming back to America.

    Now, if someone would just deport the Mexican "grass and hedge trimmers" we'd be on the right track! (this is meant in good humor, esp. to beat someone else to the punch, as I'm sure racists comments will surely be submitted about this article).

      @LedHed. I have no problem with Mexican grass and hedge trimmers IF they are here legally, in possession of a green card. It's those here ILLEGALLY I take issue with or anyone else from anywhere, not just Mexico, who is an illegal.

        Absolutely, and that's part of my point. Illegal immagrants aren't just from South-of-the-Border.
