Vitamix is recalling nearly 750,000 blending containers and blade bases after dozens of reports of lacerations by consumers. 

A notice posted on Thursday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission details the recall, which involves Vitamix Ascent Series and Venturist Series 8-ounce and 20-ounce Blending Containers and Blade Bases.

The containers can separate from the blade base and expose the blades, posing a laceration hazard to the user, officials said in the recall notice.

Vitamix, based in Cleveland, Ohio, said it has received 27 reports of lacerations, including 11 reports from a prior 2018 recall, when consumers’ hands came in contact with exposed blades.

About 569,000 products are under the recall, including many blending containers and blade bases that were previously recalled in 2018, officials said. 

The products were sold at Costco, Best Buy, Crate & Barrel, Macy’s, Target, Williams Sonoma, Walmart and specialty and independent stores nationwide, and online at, and between April 2017 through May 2024, the CPSC said. 

Prices ranged between $30 and $990 for the blender and blending containers when sold with other products.

The clear containers and black blade bases are included with certain Vitamix Venturist and Ascent Series blenders, such as the Venturist V1200, Ascent A2300, Ascent A2500, Ascent A3300, and Ascent A3500 blenders. They are also sold separately, as sets, or bundles in various configurations. 

The Vitamix logo is printed on the blending container, officials said.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled 8-ounce and 20-ounce blending containers and blade bases, and contact Vitamix for a repair kit consisting of a protective plastic shroud to attach over the blade base and additional instructional labels, the notice said.
