PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A popular tool is being taken off shelves after reports of numerous injuries – and Roman shades and snowmobiles are also being recalled this holiday season.

Harbor Freight Tools is recalling more than one million cordless drills because an internal switching mechanism can reportedly become stuck in the “on” position – causing the drill to overheat.

The recall includes Drill Master 18-volt cordless drills, according to the company.

Consumers should stop using the drills and return them to where they were purchased from for a free replacement.

Lutron Electronics is recalling Roman shades due to strangulation hazards. Strangulations can occur when a child places his or her neck between the ribbon and the fabric on the backside of the shade.

According to the company, the recall involves hobbled style motorized or custom shades. Consumers should stop using the recalled Roman shades and contact the company for a full refund or replacement.

Getting the snowmobile ready for the winter? Certain models of Ski-Doo snowmobiles are being recalled due to a fire hazard because internal damage to the fuel hose can reportedly cause a leak.

According to the company, the recall involves 68 models of 2016 Ski-Doo snowmobiles. Consumers should stop using the vehicles and contact the company for a free repair.

The recalled snowmobiles were sold nationwide from September 2015 until November 2015.
