New York, N.Y.—A laceration hazard has prompted Vitamix, Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to voluntarily recall Vitamix 64-ounce low-profile containers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on August 28, 2013.
The blender was recalled after discovering that blade can break, which poses a laceration hazard to consumers.
“The recall involves Vitamix 64-ounce Low-Profile containers with blade part number 103208 A and blade date codes 03-12 (March 2012) through 07-13 (July 2013). The blade part number and date code are laser etched onto the top of the blade at the bottom of the container. The clear, plastic, 64-ounce container with black plastic handle and lid was sold with Vitamix blender models 7500, Professional Series 300, Professional Series 750 and individually. Replacement blades with part number 104602 A are not affected,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Vitamix for instructions on how to send back the container for a free repair.
