The CPSC said that the recall is because the electrical cord plug prong can detach and remain in an electrical outlet when the vacuum is unplugged posing as a possible electrical shock hazard.

Impacted vacuums also have serial numbers that begin with AJ2226, AJ2227, AJ2228, AJ2229, AJ2230, AJ2231, and AJ2232, the CPSC said.
