CPSC And Krups Recall Defective Blender Blades

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), KRUPS North America Inc. of Closter, N.J., is recalling defective blades from about 62,000 blenders. The blades on KRUPS blender models 238 "Power X" and 239 "PowerX Plus," which were promoted for their ice crushing features, can weaken or break off once they have been used to crush ice. The broken blades can cause serious injury to the throat or mouth if swallowed or taken into the mouth.

To date, KRUPS has received 12 reports from across the country of broken blades, resulting in at least one reported tongue injury.

KRUPS models 238 "PowerX" and 239 "PowerX Plus" blenders, were sold nationwide in department and specialty stores from September 1993 through October 1994 for about $40.00 and $60.00 each, respectively.

Due to the potential for serious injury, all consumers who own these blenders should immediately stop using the blenders for any purpose and discard their blades even if there are no signs of blade damage. To receive a new blade free-of-charge, consumers should call KRUPS consumer service at (800) 526-5377. KRUPS will send a new blade that has been strengthened to ensure safe ice crushing and safe blending, mixing, pureeing and chopping of food items. Consumers will also receive a $5.00 rebate offer towards the purchase of any KRUPS product.
