Recall Issued for 8 Million Cuisinart Food Processors After Nearly 70 Reports of Broken Blades

A recall was issued Tuesday for 8 million Cuisinart food processors after nearly 70 reports of broken blades. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the impacted food processors' riveted blades can crack over time causing small pieces to break off into food. Thirty people have reported mouth lacerations or tooth injuries. Consumers with a recalled model should immediately stop using the blade and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement. The appliances that are recalled have four rivets in the blades, which are silver-colored stainless steel with a plastic beige center hub. Look on the bottom of the appliance for the model number. The recall is for food processors with model numbers that 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.To contact Cuisinart, call 877-339-2534.  Continue reading...
