The Amazon Basics blender has been removed from the online retailer. This is due to the product “presenting a risk of cuts as the cup base can be removed whilst the rotating cutting blades remain activated.”
The product has been sold exclusively online on Amazon from August 2022 to January 2023. It was described as “food blender appliance intended for blending a variety of foodstuff with rotating blades.”
The risk of injury means the product does not meet the requirements of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008. Amazon is contacting all known purchasers directly and an image as well as further details can be found on the Office for Product Safety & Standards website.
