The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of the Woodstream Mosquito Magnet. The recalled units can become damaged when a user cleans it with the company’s Quick Clear Cartridge kit after changing the propane tank. The Mosquito Magnet could propel broken pieces of the regulator, which poses a risk of injury.

From CPSC:

This recall involves Mosquito Magnet traps and Quick Clear Cartridge kits. The traps are designed to attract and capture mosquitos and other insects into the vacuum, where they dehydrate and die. The traps connect to a 20 gallon propane tank and measure about 30 to 35 inches tall. They were sold in green or green/gray combination with a black and green plastic stand. “Mosquito Magnet” is printed on the top front of the units. The model name, model number and serial number are printed on the back of the traps. The traps use Woodstream’s Quick Clear Cartridge kits to clean out the nozzle after changing propane tanks.
