Hamilton Beach/Proctor Silex, Inc. To Replace Mixers

WASHINGTON, DC -- Hamilton Beach/Proctor Silex, Inc. of Glen Allen, VA in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), today announced a voluntary replacement of certain Hamilton Beach model 230 and 232 hand-held mixers as a result of reports that the units' internal motor cooling fans have broken and fan pieces have contaminated food. Between April 1990 and April 1991, approximately 600,000 of these mixers were distributed nationwide. The mixers sold for between $10.00 and $20.00 each.

Hamilton Beach/Proctor Silex, Inc. reported approximately 15 incidents of fan blade breakage to the CPSC. Several of the incidents allegedly involved minor injuries to the mouth and teeth of consumers who ate food prepared with the mixer.

Consumers can determine if they have an affected model by looking for the model number and date code located on the under-side of the mixer housing. The nameplate contains several cautionary statements, the name "Hamilton Beach Inc.", the model number (230 or 232) and "Made in China." Date Codes are ink stamped on the mixer housing near the nameplate. Model 230 with the date codes 1290 through 1691 and Model 232 with date codes 3890 through 1791 are affected. If you have one of these mixers or if you are unsure whether your mixer is included in this replacement program, you should contact Hamilton Beach/Proctor Silex, Inc. at 1- 800-341-3333. The firm will replace these mixers with ones newly designed.
