The recall affects Vitamix Ascent and Venturist series 8-ounce and 20-ounce blending containers, the company announced on Thursday. Vitamix says it has received 11 reports of lacerations, though the company failed to disclose how serious the injuries were.
The recalled blenders were sold across the U.S. at major retailers, as well as online at vitamix.com, from April 2017 through July 2018. Prices on affected models ranged from about $24 to $500. The vast majority were sold in the U.S., with a few thousand sold in Canada.
If you own one of the recalled blenders, Vitamix advises you to stop using it immediately and contact the company for a free repair kit. Vitamix says if the blade base is marked on the bottom with a green or orange dot, that means the container has already been repaired.
