Stihl recently recalled around 5,000 chain saws as it’s possible for the throttle trigger to stick “after it has been released by the operator, which could cause the engine to continue to run at a speed that drives the saw chain.” Needless to say, a saw continuing to run when you wish it to stop can cause injuries.

Affected are the Stihl MS 361C chain saws (the C-Q version), pictured above. If you’ve got one, Stihl and the CPSC recommend that you stop using it immediately and return them to an authorized Stihl dealer, who’ll repair it for free. For additional information, check out the full CPSC-posted recall (link below) or contact Stihl at (800) 610-6677 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
