The mini tillers have gasoline engines that power rotating tines to dig into the ground and cultivate the soil.

The throttle cable can be pinched during packaging, causing the tiller tines to rotate unexpectedly when the lever is not engaged, posing a risk of serious injury to consumers.

Honda has received 30 reports of throttle cable damage, but no injuries have been reported.

The product was sold at Honda power equipment dealers and Home Depot stores nationwide, as well as, on Home Depot's website.

Consumers can contact a Honda dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair.
