Vitamix Blender Container Recall Due to Laceration Hazard

Almost 170,000 Vitamix blenders are being recalled following reports that suggest the blades may break and pose a laceration hazard for consumers.  

The Vitamix blender recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on August 28, after the manufacturer received at least 18 reports of the blades breaking. No injuries have been reported to date.

If the blade breaks while blending it may cause a laceration hazard to the user during the cleaning process or may be consumed accidently, posing internal lacerations that may require medical treatment.
