Sold exclusively at Home Depot stores across the U.S. and the company's website, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday consumers should immediately contact Emerson Tool Company for a free replacement.

The recall involves RIDGID NXT wet/dry vacuums, models HD06000 (6-gallon) and HD09000 (9-gallon).

The orange and black wet/dry vacuum has four swivel casters, a carrying handle, a hose and accessories.

RIDGID is printed on the front of the vacuum.

The model number can be found on a silver product identification label on the back of the vacuum’s powerhead assembly.

The vacuums were sold from March 2018 through July 2018 for about $50 for the 6-gallon wet/dry vacuum and for about $60 for the 9-gallon wet/dry vacuum.

No injuries or incidents have been reported.
