The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling approximately 8 million Cuisinart food processors after receiving consumer reports saying pieces of the blade ended up in their processed food.
The product's maker, Conair, received 69 reports of this kind.
Consumers reported that the blades crack over time and "small, metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food."
Here are some examples of Cuisinart food processors with riveted blades.
With all the cooking that's going on this holiday season, we're really urging consumers to act immediately.
Thirty consumers reported mouth lacerations or tooth injuries after parts of the blade ended up in their food, according to a press release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The blades involved in the recall have four rivets, are made of a silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub.
Recalled food processors were made in China and sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100 and $350.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says any consumers who own the food processors with the following model numbers should stop using them immediately: 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.
Any consumers with the affected blade should contact Cuisinart toll-free at (877) 339-2534 Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
