STIHL is recalling about 16,400 RE 90 pressure washers due to an injury hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the pressure washer nozzle can disconnect from the spray wand when under pressure during use, posing an injury hazard.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure washers and contact STIHL or an authorized STIHL servicing dealer to receive a free replacement spray wand.

STIHL has received seven reports of the nozzle detaching from the spray wand during use.  No injuries have been reported.

The product was sold at authorized STIHL dealers nationwide from May 2019 through October 2019 for about $180.
