Created: 04/23/2014 2:20 PM WHEC.com

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling hundreds of thousands of Troy Bilt Electric Leaf Blowers, manufactured by MTD.

Officials say a part of the blower can break and hit the person using it. MTD says it has received 17 complaints of cuts and bruises. Some of the cuts required stitches. 

If you have one of these leaf blowers and purchased it a Lowes, you can return it to the store for a full refund. For more information, click here
