Date: Feb. 21, 2013
Units: About 241,000
Homelite Electric Blower Vacuums are being recalled because the objects that are sucked into the machine during vacuum mode can break through the plastic and hurt the user. There has been one report of the incident, though it did not result in injury. The products, made in China, were sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide and its website between February and December 2012 for about $40.
