In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Stihl Inc. voluntary recalled an estimated 6,230 of its backpack blowers. Consumers were advised to stop the products immediately.

According to Stihl, the fan wheel on the BR 500 and BR 550 Backpack Blowers can break, resulting in pieces of plastic flying out of the blower housing, posing a risk of injury.

Stihl, based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, have received five reports of the fan wheel breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The backpack blowers have serial numbers ranging from 264264925 through 264740832, which are located on top of the engine’s cylinder on the fin. The spark plug boot can be removed to view the serial number from the exterior of the blower.

The units were sold throughout the U.S. from January 2005 through May 2005 for about U.S. $450.
