BLACK+DECKER Recalls their Electric Blower/Vacuum/Mulchers Due to Laceration Hazard

BLACK+DECKER recalled its electric blower/vacuum/mulchers, due to the fan cover can unlatch unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact BLACK+DECKER for a free repair kit, which includes a replacement fan cover. The company recalled about 560,000 (in addition, about 20,000 were sold in Canada). This recall involves BLACK+DECKER 3-in-1 electric blower/vacuum/mulchers with model numbers BV5600, BV6000 and BV6600. The model number and ‘Type 1’ are printed on the name plate on the right side of the motor housing. Only ‘Type 1’ blower/vacuum/mulchers are included in this recall. They are orange with black accents, a black fan cover and a two-speed switch. They were sold with a blower tube, a vacuum tube and a reusable collection bag. Model BV6600 also has a rake attachment. The company has received four reports of the fan covers unexpectedly coming off and consumers receiving finger lacerations from contact with the fan.
