November 12, 2015 — The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall for about 1.2 million Ninja blenders after receiving 53 reports of lacerations.
The stacked blades can fall out of the pitcher when a consumer takes off the lid and pours or inverts the pitcher. The problem can be avoided by pouring through the locked lid’s pour spout, or by removing the lid and blades before pouring.
The recall does not require consumers to return their blenders. Instead, the manufacturers asks consumers to visit www.NinjaRecall.com and download the revised warnings and instructions.
The revised warnings read:
“Stacked blade assembly is sharp, not locked in place and removable, handle with care. … If using the pour spout, ensure the lid is fully locked onto the pitcher. … Failure to do so will result in a risk of laceration.”
The recall involves 12 models of Ninja professional blenders with model numbers that start with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665. All of the blenders have a clear 72-oz pitcher with a removable lid. They were sold from March 2012 through September 2015 for about $140 at Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Target, Walmart, and online.
