CPSC, DeVilbiss Air Power Co. Announce Recall of Porter-Cable Portable
Generators

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), DeVilbiss Air Power Co., of Jackson, Tenn., is
voluntarily recalling about 600 Porter-Cable portable generators. A
small hole in the generator's fuel tank, where it mounts to the frame,
can leak fuel and pose a fire hazard to consumers.

DeVilbiss has received 10 reports of leaking fuel tanks, though no
injuries have been reported.

The recalled gasoline-powered generators have the model number BSI550-W
printed on the fuel tank between the handles. These generators also
have the date code "09-10-01" printed on a bar code label on the
gasoline tank support rail. The generators are red with a black fuel
tank and have the brand "Porter-Cable" printed on the fuel tank.

Major home centers nationwide sold these generators from September 2001
through October 2001 for approximately $600.

Consumers should stop using these generators immediately and contact
DeVilbiss Air Power Co. toll-free at (866) 422-4282 between 8 a.m. and 6
p.m. CT Monday through Friday to arrange for a free tank replacement.
For more information consumers can visit the company's website at www.devap.com

Generators produced on dates other than "09-10-01" are not
included in this recall.
