Millions of food processors with potentially hazardous blades recalled

A Connecticut-based company issued a recall on December 13 to an estimated 8 million food processors sold in the U.S. and Canada after receiving complaints that the blades could cause injuries, a cpsc.gov article reported.

At least 22 models of Cuisinart food processors have riveted blades that could break during use. Consumers could suffer injuries if small pieces of the metal blade get mixed with their processed food. In the 69 complaints received by Cuisinart owner Conair Corp., 30 people sustained either tooth injuries or mouth lacerations. To address the problem, Cuisinart will replace the defective food processor blades at no cost. Owners of the affected processors should not use the product while waiting for the blade replacement. The recall also said that 300,000 of the recalled food processors were sold in Canada.
