(CBS) — The manufacturing company Generac is recalling more than 320,000 of their portable generators because an unlocked handle can pinch someone’s fingers, crushing or even severing it.

There have been seven reports of finger amputations connected to the generators, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
