According to the recall notice, the spray gun on the recalled products has a plastic interior connector that connects the spray gun to the hose. This connector can break, causing the hose and/or parts of the connector to become unsecure during use, which poses the risk of an impact injury to the user. The potential injures can be very serious. Specifically, of the 13 injuries reported, seven required medical treatment for post-concussion, broken bones, and/or injuries to the eyes and mouth.
