Wisconsin-based Briggs & Stratton Power Products Group is recalling about 2,100 lawn mowers because the fuel tanks may leak, creating a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall affects the following Murray front engine lawnmowers:
- Model 7800162, serial numbers 2012852329 through 2012852578; 2013004655 through 2013005154; 2013071338 through 2013071546.

The company has learned of two fuel leaks. No injuries or incidents were reported.
U.S. retailers sold the lawn mowers, which were made in the U.S., from April 2008 through September 2008 for about $950 US.
Consumers should stop using the mowers and contact the dealer for a repair.
