BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is alerting the public about a recall on a popular drill sold at hardware stores nationwide.

The recall involves the DeWALT DWD110 and DWD112 3/8-inch variable speed reversing drills sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, and other hardware stores nationwide, and online at and other online retailers, from September 2017 through November 2018 for between $60 and $70. About 122,000 drills are included in the recall.

The drills are yellow with black accents and have a power cable connected at one end.

Only drills with date codes 2017-37-FY through 2018-22-FY are affected. If the drill is marked with an “X” after the date code it has already been inspected and is not affected.

The model number is located on a label on the right side of the drill. The date code is etched into the body of the drill below the label.

Consumers whose drill does not have a date code, or who cannot locate the date code should contact the company.

DEWALT Industrial Tool Company first announced a recall on it’s drills independently on January 10, 2019. The recall was later announced by the USCPSC which was limited in its abilities due to the government furlough.
