Dangerous chainsaw on the market
The department of labour inspection on Wednesday informed the public that a dangerous chainsaw has been withdrawn from the market.
The European Rapid Alert System for Dangerous Goods (Rapex) announced that the Makita power chainsaw with model number EA7900P50E was voluntarily recalled by the supplier because it poses a risk of injuries. The saw’s brake is not activated immediately and it thus does not meet basic safety regulations of the European Union.
