8 Million Cuisinart Food Processors Recalled
Just in time for the holidays! Another recall to worry about.
Cuisinart has issued a voluntary recall, on Tuesday, of 8 million of their food processors. In addition, to the 300K sold in Canada.
Conair, the company that owns Cuisinart, has received 69 reports of people who have found pieces of blade in their food. 30 of those people have cut their mouth or broken their teeth.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 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.
Over time, the blades can crack which causes small pieces to mix with the food and therefore cause injuries.
22 food processor models are included in the recall and can be found here. You can compare it to the model number on the bottom of the processor.
The Cusinart food processors were sold in stores and online from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100 and $350.
Customers are asked to immediately stop using the product and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade. You can call 877-339-2534 or visit their website.
