Cuisinart Food Processor Recall for Blade Dangers
Conair, the manufacturer of Cuisinart Food Processors, has issued a voluntary recall of the food processor after receiving 69 reports as of December 13, 2016 of their owners discovering pieces of the blade in their food after using the processors. Injuries received included 30 different reports of lacerations and tooth injuries in the mouth from consuming foods with broken blade pieces. Apparently, over time, the metal blades are possibly prone to crack and eventually break so that metal pieces wind up in the unsuspecting eater’s food. Cuisinart Food Processor owners can go to www.cuisinart.com and click on the tab for recalls or call 877-339-2534 to check for models and how to get replacement blades. It is recommended by Conair that use of the affected Cuisinart Food Processors be completely stopped until a new blade has been provided free of charge.
