The Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of certain Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner attachments for safety reasons. They were manufactured in China for TTI Floor Care N. America, in Glenwillow, Ohio. From April, 2007 through April, 2008, they were sold at many stores nationwide and cost between $60 and $170.
The recalled units are Dirt Devil Vacuum Power Brush Attachment Tools, and about 987,000 units have been recalled. The reason is that internal plastic parts can break and be ejected. The Consumer Product Safety Commission website states that TTI Floor Care has received 12 injury reports involving eyes and skin.
Identifying the recalled items
If you have a Dirt Devil, the company is urging you to stop using the turbo tool / power brush immediately. They have set up a web page which gives four steps to follow to determine if your unit is one of the recalled ones. Date codes are J7060 through J7365. They are also offering a free repair kit, which you have to order.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission website has a page giving a description and photos of the recalled items and the relevant vacuum models.
