The following recall has been announced:
DETAILS: Kitchen Selectives 6-Speed Blender manufactured and imported by Select Brands Inc. of Lenexa, Kan.; sold at Midwest retail stores Pamida and Sutherlands from June 2009 to April 2012. The blender consists of a six-inch tall, white electrical base with five, white speed-selector buttons labeled 1 through 5, one gray button labeled "Pulse/Off" and the logo "Kitchen Selectives" in black letters on the front; a clear plastic pitcher with a handle with U.S. and metric volume measurement markings; a white plastic lid with a removable clear plastic lid stopper; and a white plastic blade assembly with two angled, stainless steel blades. The blenders were manufactured in China.
WHY: While in operation, the plastic pitcher can separate from the blade assembly, leaving the blade assembly in the base and exposing the rotating blades. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers.
INCIDENTS: None reported.
HOW MANY: About 4,069.
