Black & Decker is recalling Random Orbit Sanders after more than six dozen reports of a piece shattering or flying off during use that caused at least 15 injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The culprit is the black plastic disc on the bottom of the sander that is used to hold the sandpaper, the CPSC said. Consumers have reported to Black & Decker that the disc has either broken apart -- sending sharp pieces of plastic flying -- or the entire piece shooting off the sander in its entirety.
