PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — More than 320,000 portable generators were recalled this week after the manufacturer received eight reports of injuries, including seven finger amputations.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), if the handle is unlocked, it can pinch users’ fingers against the frame when the generator is being moved.
The recall involves 6,500- and 8,000-watt generators sold nationwide from June 2013 through June 2021 under the following brand names: Generac, HomeLink, and DR.
Consumers are told to stop using the recalled generators and contact Generac at 844-242-3493 for a free repair kit.
Birkenstock USA issued a recall of more than 15,000 Mogami Kids’ sandals in sizes 24–28 because a plastic rivet can detach from the ankle strap, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The CPSC says consumers should take the recalled sandals away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
