Posted April 22, 2014

This Remington leaf blower has been recalled due to a safety hazard.

A Remington model electric leaf blower has been recalled because of a safety hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday.

In at least one documented instance, the blower’s impeller broke and struck a user, resulting in cuts and bruises.

Owners of leaf blower model RM180B, item number 41AA180G983 – with serial numbers ranging from S1E131XK0001 through S1E162XK2008 – should stop using the products and contact Remington for a replacement.

About 24,000 of the blowers were sold at retailers nationwide, the commission said. The 7.5 amp electric blowers are black. Remington, Mighty Sweep and RM180B appear on a sticker on both sides of the unit.
