Norwex USA of Coppell, Texas, is recalling about 58,000 Norwex rubber brooms.
The broom handles can break in half, exposing a metal inner rim, posing a laceration hazard to the user.
The firm has received 41 reports of the broom handle breaking in half during use, including six reports of minor injuries to user hands or fingers.
This recall involves extendable indoor/outdoor white rubber brooms that adjust in height from 30.7 to 40.6 inches long.

An embossed date stamp code of 18/9, 18/10, 18/11 or 18/12 is located on the screw joint and lock base.
The brooms, manufactured in China, were sold at Norwex Consultant events and parties through direct order and online at www.norwex.biz from January 2019, through June 2019, for about $30.
