Cuisinart Recalls 8 Million Food Processors Due To Risk of Injury

- by

Santa Clara, CA: Cuisinart is recalling about 8 million (in addition, about 300,000 were sold in Canada) food processors following reports of injury. 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.
Conair has received 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.

This recall involves the riveted blades in 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. The model number is located on the bottom of the food processor. The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are included in this recall. Cuisinart is printed on the front and on the bottom of the food processors.

The food processors were sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide and on various websites from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100 and $350. They were distributed by Conair Corp., of Stamford, Conn., owner of the Cuisinart brand, and manufactured in China.

Spent $200 + for this food processor and every time I went to clean it is felt like micro pieces of metal were rubbing off on my sponge so when I checked the blades you can tell tiny bits were coming off along the edge! I was shocked that something so expensive had this happening! I never save my receipts so I was out my hard earned money spent but thanking God it wasn't much worse!

I spent over $300.00 for my food processor and noticed my blades were falling apart. Every time I tried to return it, they refused because I didn't have my receipt even though I had proof of payment. So upsetting.
