What’s the problem?
December 13, 2016 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the massive recall Tuesday, saying customers who bought any of the affected models between July 1996 and December 2015 should stop using the riveted blade immediately.
Conair said it had received at least 69 reports of consumers finding metal fragments in their processed food, including 30 who cut their mouth or broke their teeth.
The recall affects 22 models of food processors that were made in China and sold from 1996 to 2015 for between $100 and $350. The blades in question have 4 rivets, are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. About 300,000 food processors in Canada are also affected.
“The hazard is a laceration,” said Karla Crosswhite, spokeswoman for the CPSC. “The riveted blade can crack over time and small metal pieces of that blade can break off into the processed food. … You can swallow that. People have broken teeth on it.”
The recall includes Cuisinart food processors with model numbers that begin with the following: 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.
Consumers who purchased any of these food processors should stop using them immediately and contact Cuisinart for a replacement blade.
