After receiving 53 reports of lacerations, SharkNinja and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a recall of more than a million Ninja® BL660 series professional blenders. The recalled blenders are believed to have inadequate instructions for handling due to consumers pouring or inverting the pitcher after removing the lid, despite the loose stacked blade assembly still being inside the pitcher.
According to the CPSC, the Ninja Blender recall encompasses 12 different models of professional blenders all starting with BL 660. To find the model number, check beside the rating label molded beneath the motor base. The following products are included in the massive Ninja blender recall:
|BL 660’s:||BL660, BL660B, BL660C, BL660QCN, BL660QPL, BL660W, BL660WM|
|BL 663’s:||BL663, BL663CO|
|BL 665’s:||BL665QBK, BL665QCN, and BL665QWH|
All recalled models feature a 72-ounce clear pitcher that comes with a removable black or gray lid used to seal the contents of pitcher. The recalled blenders also come with a stacked black assembly and one or more Nutri Ninja cups. The blender’s motor base, which comes in white, gray, black, cinnamon, or platinum, can reach power levels from 1,000 to 1,200 watts. Additional accessories may have been sold with the recalled blenders as well, like a 40 or 60 ounce bowl, a chopping blade assembly, or even a dull dough blade assembly.
From March 2012 through September 2015, the recalled Ninja blenders were sold nationwide for about $140 at stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Target and Walmart. The appliances were also sold online by vendors including www.Amazon.com, www.Costco.com, www.Macys.com, www.Target.com, www.Walmart.com and www.ninjakitchen.com. The recalled Ninja blenders were manufactured in China.
To avoid sustaining a laceration while operating the Ninja Blender, SharkNinja and CPSC request that consumers empty the blender’s pitcher through the locked lid’s pour spot or by removing both the lid and the stacked blade assembly prior to pouring. No returns will be necessary in the Ninja Blender recall.
