8 Million Cuisinart Food Processors Recalled by Conair- Due to Laceration Hazard/ Broken Blades and Mouth and Tooth Injuries
For those of you who are about to use your Cuisinart Food Processors over the Holidays- Think Twice. Eight Million or so of them have been recalled due to a laceration hazard, according to an announcement made by the (CPSC) Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Conair, the company which owns and distributes the food processors, has issued the recall due to over 69 reports made by consumers. There have been pieces of the broken blade in processed food, including over 30 different reports of injuries to teeth and lacerations to people’s mouths.
According to the consumer reports, the processor blade can crack over time, and small shards of metal break off into the processed food, which posed a laceration hazard to consumers, warns the CPSC.
The CPSC URGENTLY warns consumers to STOP using their Cuisinarts (there are 22 models total that have been recalled which were made between July 1996 and December 2015).
Consumers are asked to contact Cuisinart toll-free at 877-339-2534 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday or online at www.cuisinart.com and click on Product Recalls at the bottom of the page for more information on the voluntary recall.
The CPSC encouraged anyone who may have purchased one of these models to check the bottom of the food processor and compare it with the following affected model numbers that 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.
The CPSC and Conair note that the blades in question have four rivets, are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center (see photo below).
