8 Million Cuisinart Food Processors Recalled
Eight million Cuisinart Food Processors are being recalled because pieces of the blade can break off and wind up in your food.
Conair, the parent company of Cuisinart, has, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, gotten 69 reports from people who have found pieces of blades in their food, including 30 individuals who have cut their mouths or broken their teeth.
The S-shaped, riveted blade on affected models cracks over time which causes the blade to break apart. Conair says if you own one of these food processors to stop using it immediately and get in touch with Cuisinart for replacement parts.
To find if yours is part of this recall look for the model number located on the bottom of the food processor. The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are included in this recall. The model numbers involved begin with the following: CFP-9, CFP-11, DFP-7, DFP-11, DFP-14, DLC-5, DLC-7, DLC-8, DLC-10, DLC-XP, DLC-2007, DLC-2009, DLC-2011, DLC-2014, DLC-3011, DLC-3014, EV-7, EV-10, EV-11, EV-14, KFP-7 and MP-14.
