Product notification issued for wet/dry vacuums
September 17, 2018 | By Jillian Morgan
Emerson Tool Company has recalled its Ridgid NXT HD06000 (6-gallon) and HD09000 (9-gallon) wet/dry vacuums due to a shock hazard.
The on/off switch can be dislodged or pulled out from the vacuum motor cover. If the vacuum is plugged in, it could expose the user to energized wiring connectors and pose a potential shock hazard.
About 2,600 of the units were sold at Home Depot locations in Canada between March 2018 and July 2018.
Ridgid is printed on the front of the orange and black vacuum, and the model number can be found on a silver product identification label on the back of its powerhead assembly.
Emerson will provide a free replacement wet/dry vacuum powerhead assembly. www.healthycanadians.gc.ca
