The following safety alert from the CPSC on May 24, 2012.

Select Brands Inc., Lenexa, KN is recalling Kitchen Selectives® 6-Speed Blender because while in operation, the plastic pitcher can separate from the blade assembly, leaving the blade assembly in the base and exposing the rotating blades. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers. The recalled products are Kitchen Selectives┬« 6-Speed Blenders, model BL-15. The model number is located on the bottom of the base. The blender consists of a six-inch tall, white electrical base with five, white speed-selector buttons labeled 1 through 5, one gray button labeled "Pulse/Off" and the logo "Kitchen Selectives®" in black letters on the front; a clear plastic pitcher with a handle with U.S. and metric volume measurement markings; a white plastic lid with a removable clear plastic lid stopper; and a white plastic blade assembly with two angled, stainless steel blades.
They were sold in midwest retail stores Pamida and Sutherlands from June 2009 to April 2012 for about $20. Consumers should immediately stop using the blenders and return them to the retailer where purchased to receive a full refund. For additional information, contact Select Brands Customer Service at (866) 663-4500 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit Select Brands website at www.selectbrands.com.
