WASHINGTON–Electrolux and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission have recalled about 320,000 vacuums under the Ergorapido, Pronto and Precision brand names.
According to a CPSC statement, the products have been recalled because the batteries could expand and burst, posing an injury risk. Electrolux has received 34 reports of incidents involving damage to the vacuums and surrounding property. There have been two reports of minor injuries.
The products were sold at major and independent retailers throughout the nation from November 2007 through March 2009, at a price of about $100 each.
