Frigidaire has issued a recall on their professional blenders due to a potential laceration hazard. The recall states that, “the blender’s blade shaft assembly can break during use, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.”
The company has received eight reports of incidents, but no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Frigidaire Professional brand blender model FPJB56B7MS with a serial number between FFP 49 1203 0001 and FFP 49 1237 00974.
The model and serial numbers are located on a serial plate on the underside of the blender’s motor base. Frigidaire Professional is printed on the front base of the blenders. The 5-speed blender is brushed aluminum and has black buttons on the front. The blender container is a 56-ounce clear glass jar with a black lid and black base.
The recall affects about 14,000 Frigidaire blenders distributed by Electrolux Home Care Products Inc. of Charlotte, North Carolina.
These blenders were sold at Best Buy, Target and other stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com, BedBathBeyond.com and other online retailers from March 2012 through July 2013 for approximately $130.
The company asks that the users stop use and contact Frigidaire for instructions on returning the defective product for a free replacement blender.
