A Massachusetts-based company is recalling about 1.1 million blenders available nationwide after receiving complaints of laceration injuries, a November 12 article on cpsc.gov recently reported.
The recall affects twelve models of SharkNinja professional blenders that have stacked blade assemblies inside their 72 ounce pitchers. Consumers reportedly may suffer laceration injuries if they remove the pitcher cover and pour the contents without first removing the blade assembly. The company has received at least 53 complaints from consumers who have suffered lacerations.
SharkNinja has issued a warning to all consumers who own their products detailing instructions that will prevent injuries. Consumers should either use the spout portion of the lid to pour contents or remove the blade from the pitcher before emptying the contents of the pitcher. Consumers may contact SharkNinja for an updated instruction manual with the new warning.
