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

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.
