The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Robert Bosch Tool Corp. have announced a recall of about 9,700 hammer drills. The drill can continue to operate after the trigger has been released, posing a risk of injury to users. The recalled hammer drill is blue with “BOSCH” printed on the side. The model number 1191VSR can be located on the product nameplate mounted on the side of the motor. Only drills with a serial number that begins with “7” are included in the recall. The drills were sold at Menards and other hardware retailers from July 2007 through April 2008 for about $100. Consumers should stop using the recalled hammer drill immediately and contact Robert Bosch at (877) 472-0007 for a free repair.
