The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Robert Bosch Tool Corp., announced a voluntary recall of the company’s Bosch Hammer Drills.

Consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The drill can continue to operate after the trigger has been released, posing a risk of injury to consumers. No injuries have been reported.

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. The product's packaging will be marked as 1191VSRK (the "K" indicates that the hammer drill was packaged with a case in a kit). 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 and industrial distributors nationwide from July 2007 through April 2008 for about $100. Consumers should stop using the recalled hammer drill immediately and contact the firm for a free repair.

For additional information, contact the Robert Bosch Tool Corp. toll-free at 877-472-0007 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.boschtools.com.
