While blowing off the patio, the orange fan blade exploded in to pieces. Our 18 month old son was playing nearby and was hit with a piece. Fortunately no injuries were sustained but he was quite frightened by the experience. I now see there is a recall but didn't know about it at the time of use. We have owned the blower for 6 months and used it maybe 8x.
