Blenders recalled after reports of injuries
A series of blenders have been recalled after several reports of the blades cutting users.
According to the Department of Consumer Affairs, a recall has been issued for the SharkNinja BL660 series of professional blenders
The department stated: “The blender poses a laceration risk if consumers pour or invert the pitcher after removing the lid while the loose stacked blade assembly is still inside the pitcher. Consumers should empty the blender's pitcher through the locked lid's pour spout or by removing both the lid and the stacked blade assembly from the pitcher before pouring.
“This recall involves 12 models of Ninja professional blenders with model numbers that start with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665. The model number is in the rating label that is moulded into the bottom of the motor base.”
The model numbers affected are BL660, BL660B, BL660C, BL660QCN, BL660QPL, BL660W, BL660WM, BL663, BL663CO, BL665QBK, BL665QCN, and BL665QWH.
“All of these models have a clear 72 ounce pitcher with a removable grey or black lid that opens and locks closed a stacked blade assembly and one or more Nutri Ninja cups,” the statement continued.
“All recalled models have a motor base that is grey, white, black, cinnamon, or platinum. The power of the motors varies from 1,000 to 1,200 watts The recalled models may have been sold with additional accessories, including a 40 or 64 ounce bowl, a chopping blade assembly or a dull dough blade assembly.”
