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.

Thousands of potentially faulty Ducati motorcycles recalled in the US

At least 1,433 recent Ducati motorcycles in the U.S. are being recalled by the manufacturer due to a production error that may cause harm to riders during operation, an article of Motorcycle.com reported on October 7.

In the recall papers forwarded to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Ducati stated the rear wheel of the affected motorcycles may lose power during operation if the drive pulley of the primary belt malfunctions. Reports said the problem could happen due to an improperly tightened nut in the final drive pulley.

Dealers are expected to address the issue by replacing the defective washer with a much stronger one that they will tighten properly.

Nut products sold in the US recalled due to Salmonella risks

A North Carolina-based company recently issued a recall on the “Diamond of California” brand of macadamia nuts after a sample contained harmful Salmonella bacteria, an August 31 article of Food Safety News stated.

According to reports, Snyder’s-Lance Inc., is cooperating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after a laboratory test detected the hazardous bacteria in one of its samples.
