The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Hoover are recalling 108,000 Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaners because of a possible burn hazard.

The vacuums were sold between August 2009 and May 2010 both online and in stores.

The power cord has a rewind feature which may not secure the cord correctly allowing it to pull loose. One person suffered burns to their hand and there are three other reports of burns to carpet and furniture.

Below are the model numbers involved.

Model Numbers

Manufacturing code
ends with...

UH70110  UH70120
UH70200  UH70205

H09A I09A
J09A K09A

Vacuums with the manufacturing code K09A followed by a green dot are not included in this recall. Vacuum cleaners with the cord rewind feature sold after November 2009 and with any other manufacturing code are not included in this recall. The model number and manufacturing code can be found on a label on the lower rear part of the vacuum cleaner.

If you have one of these vacuums you should stop using it and contact Hoover for a free repair.

For more information, call Hoover at (888) 891-2054 between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit thecompany's Web site.
