Cuisinart Food Processors Are Being Recalled After Reports of Broken Metal in Food
On Tuesday, Conair announced a massive recall of about 8 million Cuisinart food processors due to laceration hazard.
According to a release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the riveted blades “can crack over time and small metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food.” The company has received 69 reports of this type of incident, with at least 30 of those resulting in mouth or tooth injuries.
The recall affects a wide range of machines sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide between July 1996 and December 2015. Each processor affected has a stainless steel blade with four rivets.
