Vacuum cleaner ban goes into effect in EU story image

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new vacuum cleaner ban is now in effect for countries in the European Union.

As of Monday, all high-power machines using more than 1,600 watts can no longer be sold or manufactured.

It's not a surprise to anyone, as the rule was agreed to five years ago in an effort to improve energy efficiency.
