Harbor Freight Tools of Calabasas, Calif., is recalling about 150,000 Greenwood propane torches.
The trigger that engages the flame can fail to disengage when the trigger is no longer pressed, posing a burn hazard.
The company has received two reports of the trigger failing to disengage, including one report of a burn injury.
This recall involves two models of the Greenwood-branded propane torches.
The torches with no igniter have SKU number 61589 and the torches with a push button igniter have SKU number 61595.
The torches have a steel nozzle, a flow valve, a blue grip and a black or orange hose. The SKU number is printed on a sticker located on the pipe that leads to the nozzle on the product packaging and on the manual. Only propane torches that do not have markings on the handles or brass knobs are included in this recall.
The torches, manufactured in China were sold exclusively at Harbor Freight Tools stores nationwide and online at www.harborfreight.com from November 2013, through October 2018, for between $20 and $30.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled torches and return them to any Harbor Freight Tools location for a free replacement propane torch.
