In late August, Vitamix declared a voluntary recall on particular containers with an edge which is believed to pose a possible “laceration risk.” No accidents are documented, but technicians at Vita-mix have decided the layout of the edge might be vulnerable to breaking and might subsequently result in harm. The blades in question have the number 103208A etched on the peak of the edge, and were made between March 2012 and July 2013.
If you have one of these blades, or are not sure if you have one of these blades, contact Vitamix.com for more information. Vitamix should help you process a return of the recalled blade. When the container is obtained by Vita-mix, they may at their cost fix the blade, including installing a fresh edge, and return your repaired container within a few days.
Vita-mix is asking for customers that have one of these affected blades to begin the recall process instantly. Vitamix is also offering a one year warranty extension for customers affected by the recall.
