Recall - StrikeMaster Lithium LazerTM Ice Auger

Web posted on March 09, 2015

This recall involves the Lithium LazerTM ice auger, which is used when ice fishing to cut circular holes in ice to access the water below. The Lithium LazerTM ice auger is a 24-pound unit powered by an electric motor and a rechargeable 50 volt lithium ion battery.

The on/off trigger switch on the Lithium LazerTM ice auger's handle can fail, allowing continued rotation of the rotating drill even in the "off" position, creating a risk of injury to the user and bystanders.

Customers should immediately stop using the Lithium LazerTM ice augers. Customers can return their Lithium LazerTM ice augers to the retailers from which they purchased them or to Normark Inc. for a full refund.

Neither Health Canada nor Normark Inc. has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

In total, 58 of the affected ice augers were sold in Canada and about 3,000 were distributed in the United States. The affected products were sold from November 2014 to February 2015 in Canada and from September 2014 to January 2015 in the United States at various independent retailers and online.

The affected agers were manufactured in the United States and distributed through Normark Inc., Oshawa, Ontario.

For more information, consumers may contact Normark Inc. by telephone at 1-905-571-3001 from Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST.

Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website.
