Bunnings has issued a recall over a leaf blower over concerns it could cause electric shock.

The Ozito Portable Electric Blower Model #OZBL1800WA retailing for $59, can break during use, rupturing the casing, and giving access to live parts and releasing sharp objects at high speed, according to the hardware giant.

It’s understood the defect has already caused a number of injuries to consumers.

A string of batches are affected, which can be found here.

The batch number is located near the product’s air intake vent.

Customers should immediately unplug the blower before contacting Ozito for a full refund.
