Ice Augers Recalled for Injury Hazard

Rapala USA has recalled about 3,060 StrikeMaster® Lithium Lazer™ Ice Augers because the trigger switch could fail and the unit not turn off, posing an injury hazard.

Normark Corporation, dba Rapala USA of Minnetonka, Minn., is offering refunds to customers who purchased one of its StrikeMaster® Lithium Lazer™ Ice Augers, with a recall of the product affecting about 3,000 units in the United States and 60 in Canada, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced. The auger's trigger switch can fail and cause the auger not to turn off, which poses an injury hazard.

Consumers who bought one can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund of return it to Rapala (www.rapala.com) for a full refund or a $700 credit toward a new product.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the recalled auger. They were sold at sporting goods stores from September 2014 through January 2015 for about $600.

Ice fishermen use the auger to cut holes in the ice for fishing.
