Hamilton Beach Recalls Juice Extractors
 

Glen Allen, Va. (SafetyAlerts) - Hamilton Beach has recalled about 2.4 million juice extractors. The juice extractor's strainer
basket and lid can break apart, posing a risk of injury to nearby consumers, who can be struck by metal or plastic.

Hamilton Beach has received 35 reports in the U.S. and Canada of strainer baskets breaking apart, including four incidents where consumers required stitches after being struck by broken metal and plastic.

The recalled juice extractors are white plastic, about 12 inches in height, and have the name "Hamilton Beach" printed on the side of the unit. The juice extractors have the following model numbers, which can be found under each unit: 67150, 67180, 67180W, 395WS, 67199 and 3920JS.

Mass merchandise stores nationwide sold these juice extractors between 1992 and October 2001 for between $30 and $40.

Consumers should stop using these juice extractors immediately and call Hamilton Beach at (800) 298-9955 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for information on how to participate in the recall. Consumers with models for which replacement parts are available (models 67150, 67180 and 67180W) will receive a free replacement strainer basket. Consumers with models for which replacement parts are not available (models 395WS, 67199 and 3920JS) will receive their choice of a new juice extractor or a $10 refund.
