Black + Decker is one of the many household and yard appliance manufacturers in America, what many would call a Power Tools Company. They make products such as charcoal and propane grills, cocktail makers, power drills, leaf blowers, and many other items that are helpful inside and outside of the home. Some say that Black + Decker is an easy steer clear name brand while others will swear by it.

Customers started to become weary of Black + Decker when they expanded on their focal products like power tools, lawnmowers, and leaf blowers and started to produce vacuums and other household items. They have built an extensive list of household appliances and products that have seemingly done well within the market, but one of those household products is being recalled due to injury.
