Blender recalled over ‘laceration’ fear

Target has issued a second recall for a blender it sold over a period of almost six years due to concerns it could cause serious injuries, including lacerations.

The glass jug supplied with the blender can separate from the plastic base while in use, exposing "dangerous rotating blades", the retailer has warned.

Consumers are advised to stop using the blender and take it back to your closest Target for a full refund and a $5 gift card. No receipt is required.

The blenders were sold online and in Target and Target country stores between September 2014 and March this year.

A recall was first issued in April, but Target sought to remind customers about it on Friday.

"We take the quality and safety of our products very seriously, which is why we are reissuing a previous product recall," the company said in a post on its Facebook page, where it also asked followers to "please pass this information on to friends and family".
