Conair of Stamford, Conn., is recalling about 67,500 Cuisinart Compact Blender & Juice Extractor Combos Model CBJ-450 sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The nut holding the blender blade assembly can loosen and detach from the base when in use, posing a laceration hazard if a consumer comes in contact with a loose blade.
The firm has received three reports of incidents in which the blender blade detached during use. In one incident, the blade perforated the blender container. No injuries are reported.
This recall involves certain Cuisinart compact blender and juice extractor combos with model number CBJ-450.
The model number is printed on the label located on the bottom of the base and on the original packaging.
The blades are silver-colored stainless steel and have a black plastic center hub.
Cuisinart is printed on the front and on the bottom of the compact blender and juice extractor combos.
The blender and juice extractor combos, manufactured in China, were sold at Crate & Barrel and other department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Macys.com, Kohls.com and other online retailers from November 2021, through August 2022, for about $80.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled blender part of the compact blender and juice extractor combos and contact Conair for a free replacement blade assembly.
Consumers will receive instructions on how to install the replacement blade assembly after discarding the existing blade assembly, and after verifying disposal of the existing blade assembly.
No tools are needed, and the new assembly can be inserted into the unit in the identical manner that the original assembly was in accordance with the operating instructions that the consumer received when the product was purchased.
The juice extractor is unaffected and may continue to be used.
Consumers may contact Cuisinart toll-free at (877) 339-2534 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online at www.cuisinart.com/recall/CBJ-450 for more information.
