The Minneapolis-based Target is recalling hundreds of thousands of blenders after they received complaints of severe cuts to the hand and fingers caused by the product.
The U.S. Consumer Product Commission made this announcement Thursday, which is recalling over 300,000,000 Chefmate six-speed blenders, model BL-10, reported the Star Tribune.
According to the CPCS the plastic pitcher can detach from the blade assembly while in operation, leaving the rotating blades expose.
Nearly a dozen people contacted Target about the malfunction, seven of which complained about serious injuries to the hand and fingers reported the Star Tribune.
These blenders were sold exclusively at Target and were made in China for Select Brands of Lenaxa, Kansas. They were sold for around $14 from September 2007 to February 2011, reported TribLive News.
Consumers are urged to stop using the blenders and return them to target for a full refund, reported TrivLive News.
