A popular blender was recently recalled to provide new warnings and instructions. Last week, SharkNinja recalled about 1.1 million of the Ninja BL660 series professional blenders in the United States due to lacerations injuries. *Source: www.cpsc.gov
When consumers pour or invert the pitcher after removing the lid while the loose stacked blade assembly is still inside the pitcher, the blade assembly detaches and can cut consumers’ hands.
The company is issuing a new warning and instruction for consumers to empty the pitcher through the locked lid’s pour spout or by removing both the lid and the stacked blade assembly from the pitcher before pouring to avoid laceration injury.
The company has received 53 reports of lacerations.
The recall involves 12 models of Ninja professional blenders with model numbers that start with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665. The model number is in the rating label that is molded into the bottom of the motor base. The blenders were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Target, Walmart and other stores nationwide. The affected blenders were also sold online including Amazon from March 2012 through September 2015 for about $140.
When there is a product recall, most of the time, there is a design defect making the product unsafe. There are 2 other ways a product can be defective: a manufacturing defect and the failure to provide proper warning or instructions. The types of defects we see with recalled consumers products are design and manufacturing defects. However, this recent recall of the Ninja blenders is not due to a design or manufacturing defect. Rather, it involves a defect relating to lack of instructions/warnings, i.e., the blenders lack proper instructions for the consumers on how to use the blenders safely.
If consumers are injured by a recalled product, they may have legal rights against the manufacturer and can file a dangerous products case, also known as products liability cases.
Like any other dangerous products cases due to design or manufacturing defects, consumers who are injured due to lack of instructions/warnings may recover for the following financial damages:
The fact that a product is defective because it does not contain proper instructions or warnings does not mean that it is not defective in other ways. A product may be defective because it lacks proper instructions/warnings, and is improperly designed or manufactured.
