Cuisinart recalls food processors

Dec. 13, 2016–Cuisinart is voluntarily recalling about 8 million food processors after reports of cracking blades and pieces of the metal appearing in processed foods.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued an alert today stating “the food processor’s riveted blade can crack over time and small, metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers.”

The USCPSC has received about 70 reports of consumers finding broken metal pieces of the blade in processed food as well as mouth lacerations and tooth injuries.
