The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Cuisinart Food Processors made by Conair because the riveted blade can break over time and small metal pieces can get into the food the machine processes. This poses a laceration hazard.
About 8,000,000 of these units were sold in the U.S., and 300,000 were sold in Canada. The model numbers that are recalled 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. The model number is on the bottom of the food processor.
The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel. They have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors that have blades with four rivets are included in this recall.
Conair has received 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of blade in the processed food. And there have been 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries because of this problem.
If you have the product with the above model numbers, stop using it immediately. Contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.
The food processors were sold at department stores, gourmet stores,and specialty stores nationwide and on websites from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100 and $350. They were made in China.
