    Honda Power Equipment Manufacturing Inc.
    Recall of Lawnmowers - Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

    Name of product: Honda Harmony Walk-Behind Lawnmowers
    Units: 30,000

    Hazard: If the lawnmower strikes an object with sufficient force, the crankshaft can bend. Vibration created by a bent crankshaft can eventually result in a fatigue failure of the Roto-stop(tm) blade brake control assembly. This can allow the cutting blade to continue rotating after the blade control lever is released, posing a risk of injury to consumers.

    Incidents/Injuries: American Honda has received six reports of broken stop plates. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

    Description: These are Honda Harmony 21-inch, walk-behind mowers with model numbers HRB216TXA or HRB216HXA. The model numbers are located on a metal plate behind the engine, just in front of the rear discharge opening. These black and red mowers have "Honda Harmony" printed in white on the front.

    Sold at: Power Equipment dealers and Home Depot stores nationwide from November 2000 through June 2003 for between $700 and $760.
    Manufactured in: United States.
    Remedy: Honda Lawn and Garden dealers will repair these mowers by replacing the Roto-stopTM mechanism.

    Consumer Contact: To locate a servicing Honda Lawn and Garden dealer, consumers should call American Honda at (800) 426-7701 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or go to the Web site at www.hondapowerequipment.com.
