UNDATED (NBC) -- STIHL is recalling about 100,000 MS 461 and MS 461 R gas-powered chain saws because the fuel line can leak: posing fire and burn hazards.

The company has received more than 100 reports of pinched or leaking fuel lines. No fires or injuries have been reported.

The chain saws were sold nationwide from July 2012 through last December.

Consumers should stop using the product and return it to an authorized STIHL dealer for a free inspection and repair.
