CPSC Product Recall: Homelite Cleaner Attachments Pose Injury Risks

07/22/2011 // WPB, FL, USA // Personal Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Anderson, SC — Homelite Surface Cleaner Attachments have been voluntarily recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Homelite Consumer Products Inc., for laceration hazards the product poses. The CPSC announced the voluntary product recall on July 21, 2011.

The nationwide product recall was issued after discovering that the surface cleaner attachment’s nozzle and spray bar can break and detach, which can cause it to hit and/or break the unit’s plastic housing. The broken nozzle spray bar then can hit consumers, which can result in lacerations.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves drum-shaped surface cleaner attachments for pressure washers. The pressure washer attachments were sold in orange or red colors and have hexagonal brass-colored nozzles inside a 15-inch plastic drum holding the spray bar. They were sold with Homelite pressure washer models HL80833 and HL80835. They were sold separately as Powercare model AP31022A and EZ Clean model AEZ231022.”

Consumers are being advised to contact Homelite for a free replacement surface cleaner attachment.

For more information about the product recall, consumers can contact Homelite toll-free at (800) 867-9624 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET or visit www.homelite.com.
