What's the Problem?
This recall affects HD Hudson illu-Mist 40001 one-gallon & 40002 two-gallon battery-powered garden sprayers, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
"The sprayer’s lithium-ion battery can overheat, posing a fire hazard," CPSC said. "The firm has received four reports of batteries overheating, including one report of a battery melting and catching fire resulting in less than $100 in property damage."
The recalled power sprayers measure 19.5 inches in height and have a plastic triangle-shaped handle in gray with teal blue trim and a white tank with the “illu-Mist” logo printed on the front side of the tank.
Affected sprayers were sold online and at Lowe’s stores nationwide from Dec. 2019 thru Jan. 2021 for between $40 and $50.
If you purchased a power sprayer that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it, remove the battery tray, and look for a brown battery. "If the battery is brown, consumers should remove the battery and tray and dispose of them in accordance with local laws for disposal of lithium-ion batteries, and contact HD Hudson for a free replacement battery and tray," CPSC said.
This recall began on March 18, 2021.
