Mt. Prospect, Ill (WVLT) -- Officials of Robert Bosch Tool Corporation say there is a problem with the trigger switch.
It can be locked on or the switch can be turned on without the use of the safety lock-out.
As a result it could cut a person who is using the saw.
The 811,000 saws were sold nationwide at home centers and independent hardware retailers nationwide from January 2002 to December 2006.
The voluntary recall involves Skil brand circular saws with model numbers 5650, 5700, 5750 and 5755.
The model number and date code are printed on the nameplate located on the front of the saw.
The recall includes the following date codes:
28101 - 29231
38101 - 39231
48101 - 49231
58101 - 59231
68101 - 69231
