The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Alltrade Tools, Inc., has announced the voluntary recall of about 45,000 Kawasaki Cordless Drills.  These drills were sold at Costco stores nationwide from May 2011 through February 2012.

The trigger switch on the drill can short and generate excessive heat, posing a burn hazard.  Alltrade Tools has received 33 reports of incidents, including one minor burn injury.

The recall involves Kawasaki Cordless Drills, model 691761, sold in green and black color combination, with a 19.2v battery pack.  "Alltrade Tools LLC" and "Made in China" are printed in white lettering on the left side of the drills. The drill's model and serial numbers are located on a label on the right side of the drill. The recalled drills have the following serial numbers:

  • From 11030 30201 to 11030 33656
  • From 11040 00001 to 11040 17120
  • From 11060 00001 to 11060 07340
  • From 11070 00001 to 11070 05984
