BlendJet Inc. is initiating a recall for approximately 4.8 million portable blenders that were retailed at Costco, Target, and Walmart. 

The recall is prompted by numerous incidents reported to the Benicia, California-based company, including instances of the blender blades breaking during use, product overheating, and catching fire. 

These incidents have led to dozens of injuries and property damage claims amounting to approximately $150,000.

As outlined in a notice released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday, BlendJet has been made aware of 329 cases where the blades of BlendJet 2 Portable Blenders fractured during operation.

Additionally, there were 17 reported cases of overheating or fires. 

The injuries resulting from these incidents include 49 minor burn injuries and one laceration injury.
