There has been an announcement by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall about 4.8 million BlendJet 2 portable blenders. The blenders may overheat or catch fire, according to the CPSC, which is why they are being recalled. Additionally, the blender's blades may shatter. They present a risk of burns and cuts to customers.

There were numerous patterns and colors available for the blenders. They weigh about 1.5 pounds and measure about 9.5 inches in height and 3 inches in width. The blenders with "blendjet1" and "The Original Portable Blender" on the bottom have serial numbers, according to the CPSC. The serial number's first four numbers fall between 5201 and 5542.

The CPSC advises to stop using any BlendJet portable blender that is subject to the recall and contacting BlendJet to arrange for a free base unit replacement. You must take off and cut into three parts the rubber seal located at the base of the blender after getting in touch with BlendJet. After that, you'll need to snap a picture and either upload it to the business' website or send it via email to with the serial number visible.

Approximately 329 complaints of the blender's blades breaking off while it was being used have been made. According to the CPSC, there have also been 17 incidents of flames or overheating, which have resulted in claims for around $150,000 worth of property damage. In addition, 49 instances of minor burns and one of laceration injuries had been made.

Costco, Walmart, Target, and other national retailers carried the BlendJets. We have all 3 in North Dakota, so there is a possibility they could have been sold in this area. According to the CPSC, these were also offered for sale at from October 2020 to November 2022 at a price range of $50 to $70.
