Black and Decker Recalls Blower Vacuum

A popular blower vacuum is being called back because it could catch fire.

Black and Decker are recalling 272,000 of the blower vacuums.

It’s the BV 4000 type of blower.

It’s being recalled because a loose connection between the machine and an extension cord can cause it to overheat and catch fire.

So far, 187 units have overheated, causing some minor burns to the users.

If you have one of the units, contact Black and Decker for a free repair kit at blackanddeckercom.
