(WBNG Binghamton) One World Technologies has recalled about 300,000 Ryobi ¼ Sheet Sanders due to a laceration hazard

Pieces of the fan can break off from the fan assembly and be ejected from the product, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

The company has received 31 reports of broken fan pieces being ejected from the sander, including two reports of minor lacerations.

This recall involves Ryobi brand sheet sanders, model S651D. The sander is blue and black.

The word “Ryobi” is on the left side. The model number can be found on the data plate located on the side of the sander just below the handle.

The sanders were sold at Home Depot, Gardner, Inc., Tap Enterprises, Inc., Direct Tools Factory Outlets, Amazon.com, and ToolKing.com from June 2005 through August 2010 for about $30.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sander and contact One World Technologies to receive a free replacement sander.
