Bunnings recalls gardening tool over risk of electric shock
Posted On April 26, 2022
Some models of Ozito’s portable electric blower are being taken off the shelves due to a defect with the impeller that can break during use and rupture the casing.
This can release sharp objects at high speed and give access to live parts.
Bunnings said several people have been injured by the defect.
People who have purchased the product have been asked to stop using the blower immediately and unplug it from the socket.
The gardening tool has been sold at Bunnings stores nationally.
