Harbor Freight drills recalled

Cordless drills made in China sold at Harbor Freight Tools from April 2008 through May 2012 are the subject of a recall.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the black rigger switch of the Harbor Freight Tools Cordless Drills can wear down over time and allow for metal to make contact with other metal, causing an overheating or burn hazard.

The product has a 19.2-volt rechargeable battery pack.

Harbor Freight Tools has received one report of a drill overheating and burning through the handle of the unit, which resulted in a consumer receiving a minor injury.

About 108,000 products are affected by the recall.
