Missouri company recalls generators

Friday, June 26, 2009

PERRYVILLE, Mo. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces a voluntary recall of generators sold in Missouri and Illinois.

About 450 PowerPlus Generators from Perryville, Mo.-based Big Muddy Sports can be returned for refunds.

The product was sold at Buchheit retail stores in Illinois and Missouri during May 2009 for about $700.

The commission says the 220-volt receptacle can fail to produce power correctly, causing power surges that can damage appliances.

There have been five reports of damage caused by power surges, but no injuries.
