HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Black & Decker is recalling about 560,000 electric blowers because the fan cover can unlatch unexpectedly.

The company received four reports of the covers coming off and users getting their fingers cut from contact with the fan, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall is for Black & Decker 3-in-1 electric blower/vacuum/mulchers with model numbers BV5600, BV6000 and BV6600. The blowers were sold with a blower tube, a vacuum tube, and a reusable collection bag from May 2013 through September 2016 for between $70 and $90.

Consumers should contact Black & Decker for a free repair kit that includes a replacement fan cover.
