Country Home Products Recall to Repair DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Country Home Products, Inc. of Vergennes, Vt, is voluntarily recalling about 1,071 DR®Leaf and Lawn Vacuums. These leaf and lawn vacuums have a plastic elbow and blower exit adaptor that is connected to the top of the shredding chamber. The plastic can crack allowing stones, large sticks, and other material to puncture the plastic. This creates the possibility that pieces of plastic or other debris can fly upward toward bystanders or the operator. When this occurs, the potential for personal injury or property damage exists. This is more prone to occur when the outside temperatures are below 35 degrees.

When this occurs, the potential for personal injury or property damage exists.
