Frigidaire has issued a recall for its professional blender model FPJB56B7MS with a serial number between FFP 49 1203 0001 and FFP 49 1237 00974.

The blender's blade shaft assembly can break during use, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

Consumers can call Frigidaire toll-free at (888) 747-7637 from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. CT on Saturday and Sunday, or online at www.frigidaire.com

You can also go online to blenderrecall.com and enter the blender's serial number to determine if the blender is part of the recall.

About 14,000 blenders were sold.

The model and serial numbers are located on a serial plate on the underside of the blender's motor base. Frigidaire Professional is printed on the front base of the blenders.

The 5-speed blender is brushed aluminum and has black buttons on the front. The blender container is a 56-oz. clear glass jar with a black lid and a black base.

Frigidaire has received eight reports of the blender's blade shaft assembly breaking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the recalled blenders immediately and contact Frigidaire for instructions on returning the blenders for a free replacement blender.

It was sold at Best Buy, Target and other stores nationwide and online at amazon.com, bedbath.com and other online retailers from March 2012 through July 2013 for about $130.
