Cuisinart Food Processor Recall
Cuisinart has recalled approximately 8 million food processors after 30 reports of injuries from broken pieces of the blade in their food, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
What is the problem?
The food processor’s riveted metal blade can crack over time, and small metal pieces of the blade can break off and get into processed food. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers.
“These are in millions of American homes, including my own,” said CPSC Chairman Elliot Kaye. “With all the cooking that’s going on this holiday season, we’re really urging consumers to act immediately.”
How Many People Have Been Injured?
The manufacturer of the recalled food processors, Conair Corp., received 69 reports from consumers who found broken pieces of the blade in their processed food, including 30 people who suffered mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.
Safety Risks to Consumers
- Mouth wounds
- Intestinal damage
- Bleeding internally
- Chipped tooth (enamel and/or dentin)
- Death of pulp tissue in tooth
- Dental emergency
- Surgery to remove metal pieces
What Products Were Recalled?
The recall includes 22 models of food processors that were sold in department stores and online retailers nationwide from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100 and $350. The recall only involves blades with four rivets.
“Cuisinart” is printed on the front and bottom of the food processors. The recall includes the following model-numbers:
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.
What To Do If Your Food Processor Was Recalled
Consumers should immediately stop using the food processor and contact Conair for a free replacement blade. Do not return your food processor to the store — only the blades are being recalled.
