American Honda Motor Company of Torrance Calif., is recalling about 340,000 Honda EB2200i, EU2200i, EU2200i Companion and EU2200i Camo Portable Generators.

About 200,000 were recalled in 2019.

The inverter assembly can short circuit with the presence of salt water, causing the unit to smoke or catch fire, posing fire and burn hazards.

The firm has received 13 reports of the generator’s inverter assembly short-circuiting while in use, including ten reports of fire. No injuries or property damage reported.

This recall involves Honda EB2200i, EU2200i, EU2200i Companion and EU2200i Camo portable generators.

The recalled portable generators were sold with a red or Camo cover. The name “HONDA” and the generator model name are printed on the control panel.

The serial number is located on a lower corner of one of the side panels of the generator. The model names and serial number ranges that are being recalled:
