Harbor Freight Chainsaw Recall

Incidents/injuries: Harbor Freight Tools has received 15 reports of chain saws continuing to operate after being turned off by the operator, resulting in three laceration injuries, including one serious arm injury that required stitches.

The recall involves two models of 14 inch chainsaws sold under three different brand names - Portland, One Stop Gardens, and Chicago Electric. About 1,020,000 units are affected by the recall.

Harbor Freight, a business that sells power tools and home supplies, has recalled several different chainsaws after discovering a risky fault.

All have "Portland" printed on the blade. "Portland" is printed in large capital letters across the saw.
