A popular brand of upright vacuum is being recalled.

Vacuum maker Euro-Pro is recalling four models of Shark brand vacuums due to a potential shock hazard.

According to the company, the aluminum wand on some models of the "Rotator Powered Lift-Away" series can disconnect from the cleaner's handle and remain energized with electricity.

The vacuums are either maroon or purple in color and have a clear plastic middle section.

One hundred-forty-two thousand NV650W, NV651, NV652 and NV660 models are impacted.

They were sold through infomercials and in stores.

Consumers should stop using the recalled vacuum cleaners and contact Euro-Pro to receive a free replacement wand.
