A popular blender that has been sold by Target for six years has been recalled over fears the blades could cause serious lacerations.

Target customers have been advised to stop using the blender immediately after it was identified as having a risk of serious injury to consumers.

The department store issued the warning on Facebook after it said a defect was found that could cause the product’s glass jug to separate from the plastic base when the blender is in use, exposing the rotating blades.

The Target Stainless Steel Table Blender 1.5L was available from September 2014 to March 6 2020 at Target, Target Country and Target online.

The affected blender’s model number is TARB100-500W and the keycode is 56924381 - both can be found on the base of the product.

Those who purchased the product can return it to any Target store, with or without a receipt, for a full refund and a $5 Target gift card.

The retailer has asked customers to pass information on the recall to friends and family.
