If you own a Shark vacuum and need an excuse not to use it, you might have found a reason.
Euro-Pro has issued a voluntary recall of four models of its Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away vacuum cleaners. The affected machines are easy to identity since they are either maroon or purple. (Tweet this)
The reason for the recall is a part in the wand that can break and lead to possible electric shock, the website read. The recall affects about 142,000 in the United States and about 650 in Canada, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The commission reports that Euro-Pro has received 62 reports of incidents in which the wand broke away from the vacuum's handle.
"There have been no instances of injuries or property damage, but safety is our first priority," read a statement on the Shark recall site. "Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vacuum cleaners and contact Shark Cares Support team to receive a free replacement wand."
Euro-Pro is a private company best known for its Shark and Ninja brands.
The models affected are NV650W, NV651, NV652, and NV660. Euro-Pro has included a step-by-step guide for how to identify your vacuum and how to send it back.
