According to the recall, the blower's shoulder straps, plastic buckles or anti-static ground wire can be drawn into the fan. This can cause plastic pieces to be expelled from the machine, posing laceration and impact hazards.

The recall involves ECHO and Shindaiwa brand 2-cycle gas powered commercial backpack blowers with shoulder straps. As well as replacement shoulder straps. The model and serial numbers are located on the blower's engine block.
