81,000 tools recalled for shock danger

Dewalt is recalling its DW660 cut-out tools because they could put users at risk of receiving a shock, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

A type of cord in the tools might be damaged, the company says. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The tools were sold at home and hardware stores across the U.S. from January 2006 through November 2006 in kits ranging in price from $70 and $130 US.

Consumers should stop using the tools and contact the company for an inspection and repair.
