CPSC recalls Troy-Bilt leaf blowers

Posted: Updated:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls 134,000 Troy-Bilt electrical leaf blowers made by MTD.

The blower's impeller can break and hit a person, the CPSC said, which could pose a possible laceration hazard.  MTD has received 17 reports of lacerations, bruises and cuts. 

Consumers should stop using the blow immediately.  Blowers that were purchased at Lowe's can be returned to the store for a free replacement.
