Federal officials announced Tuesday that Conair Corporation is voluntarily recalling 8 million food processors because of potential safety hazards.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the blades in the food processors may possibly break, leaving them suspended in the food, which may cause injuries to users. The items included in the recall are limited to processors that have four rivets in its blades. The silver-colored stainless steel blades are printed with “Cuisinart” at the bottom. These were sold across the United States between July 1996 and December 2015 bearing the following model numbers: 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 date, Cuisinart brand manufacturer Conair Corp has received a total of 69 consumer complaints, 30 of which contained reports of mouth lacerations and tooth injuries from the broken pieces of the blade found in processed food.
