PRODUCT: Rival Manufacturing Company three-speed hand-held mixers, model number 433, date codes 3690 through 5290 and 0191 through 2791.

PROBLEM: The units' internal motor cooling fans may break and fan pieces could then contaminate food and possibly injure consumers eating food prepared with the mixer.

WHAT TO DO: Consumers with affected units or with questions should call Rival at 1-800-793-0052. Rival will replace affected mixers with ones newly designed.

WASHINGTON, DC -- Rival Manufacturing Company of Kansas City, MO in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary replacement of certain model number 433 Rival three-speed hand-held mixers as a result of reports that the units' internal motor cooling fans have broken and fan pieces have contaminated food. Between November 1990 and September 1991, approximately 600,000 of these mixers were distributed nationwide by a variety of discount chains and department stores. The mixers sold for $8.00 to $14.00 each.

Rival Manufacturing Company reported 27 incidents of fan blade breakage to CPSC. Several of the incidents allegedly involved minor injuries to the mouth or teeth of consumers who ate food prepared with the mixers.

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 "Rival Mfg. Co.," "Model 433" and "Made in China." Date codes are ink stamped on the mixer housing near the nameplate. Model 433 mixers with the date codes 3690 through 5290 and 0191 through 2791 are affected. Consumers who have these mixers or are unsure whether their mixer is included in this replacement program, should contact Rival at 1-800-793-0052. Rival will replace affected mixers with a newly designed model.
