One World Technologies has issued a recall of approximately 121,000 Ryobi Electric Jet Fan Blowers, in addition to about 1,900 that were sold in Canada and 1,100 in Mexico. The plastic fan inside the blower can break causing the fan blades to be discharged from either end of the blower tube, posing a laceration hazard.

This recall involves the Ryobi 8amp Electric Jet Fan Blowers with model number RY42102 and a serial number between EU15401D170001 and EU16239N999999. The model and serial numbers are printed on the data label on the bottom of the blower. The blower is black and green with RYOBI printed on the side of the blower and 8amp JET FAN printed on the side of the blower.

Thus far, One World has received reports of 10,681 incidents, including 25 reports of minor injuries, such as lacerations to the face, hands and legs from fan blade pieces being discharged from either end of the blower. No property damage has been reported to date.

The recalled electric blowers were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide, in Canada and Mexico and online from December 2015 through December 2016 for about $40 each.
