Rubber brooms recalled by Norwex due to laceration hazard
August 25, 2019
Norwex is recalling about 58,000 rubber brooms.
The broom handles can break in half, exposing a metal inner rim, posing a laceration hazard to the user.
Norwex has received 41 reports of the broom handle breaking during use, including six reports of minor injuries to user hands or fingers.
This recall involves extendable indoor/outdoor white rubber brooms that adjust in height from 30.7 to 40.6 inches. The “Norwex” logo is located on the plastic head covering the rubber bristles. An embossed date stamp code of 18/9, 18/10, 18/11, or 18/12 is located on the screw joint and lock base.
The rubber brooms were sold at Norwex Consultant events and parties through direct order and online at www.norwex.biz from January 2019 through June 2019. The cost was about $30.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled brooms and contact Norwex for a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise. Norwex is also contacting known owners of the recalled brooms directly and through its consultants.
