Consumers with one of these recalled bandsaws should stop using them immediately until a repair kit is installed. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, Grizzly Industrial is sending repair kits directly to consumers.

The bandsaws were sold through Grizzlyâ€™s showrooms, catalog and Web site, and Amazon.com from February 2008 through July 2009 for about $1,600.
According to the recall notice, some of the recalled bandsaws do not have a grounding wire installed, which poses an electric shock hazard to consumers.
