Calphalon Corporation, of Atlanta, Ga., has recalled its blenders. A piece of the blender’s mixing blade unit can break off during use, posing an injury hazard. This recall involves Calphalon XL 9-speed blenders, model 1832449, also identified as model ME600BL. The model number is located on the underside of the blender’s base. The blender consists of a 5-inch tall, brushed-aluminum base with cord storage, the Calphalon logo in black letters at the front, and nine black/white speed selectors with labeling, plus the power button. It also has a clear 56-ounce glass pitcher with a handle and U.S. and metric volume measurement markings; a black plastic lid with a removable clear plastic lid stopper/measuring cup; and a metal blade assembly with six-sided, stainless steel blades. Calphalon has received four reports of a piece of the blender’s mixing blade breaking off. No injuries have been reported.
The blenders were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, JCPenney, Macy’s and other major retail stores nationwide and online at Calphalon.com, Amazon.com, Cooking.com, and Zappos.com, among others, from September 2012 through September 2013 for about $130.
