What’s the problem?
December 13, 2016 – Conair, the company that manufactures Cuisinart food processors, has received at least 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of a “riveted blade” in their processed food, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries, according to the CPSC.
Affected blades have 4 rivets, are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. The recall includes 22 food processor models that were made in China and sold from July 1996 to December 2015 for between $100 and $350.
“The hazard is a laceration,” according to a CPSC spokesperson. “The riveted blade can crack over time and small metal pieces of that blade can break off into the processed food. … You can swallow that. People have broken teeth on it.”
Model numbers of affected Cuisinart food processors begin with: 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.
Consumers who purchased any of these products should stop using them immediately and contact Cuisinart for a replacement blade.
