SharkNinja Operating of Newton, Mass., is recalling about 1.1 million Ninja BL660 series professional blenders in the U.S. and Canada.
The blender poses a laceration risk if consumers pour or invert the pitcher after removing the lid while the loose stacked blade assembly is still inside the pitcher.
The firm has received 53 reports of lacerations.
This recall involves 12 models of Ninja professional blenders with model numbers that start with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665. The model number is in the rating label that is molded into the bottom of the motor base.
The 12 affected model numbers are:
|BL 663's:||BL663, BL663CO|
|BL 665's:||BL665QBK, BL665QCN, and BL665QWH|
All of these models have a clear 72-oz. pitcher with a removable gray or black lid that opens and locks closed, a stacked blade assembly, and one or more Nutri Ninja cups. All recalled models have a motor base that is gray, white, black, cinnamon, or platinum. The power of the models' motors vary from 1,000 to 1,200 watts.
The recalled models may have been sold with additional accessories, including a 40 or 64 ounce bowl, a chopping blade assembly, or a dull dough blade assembly.
