Product Safety Alert: Massive Cuisinart Food Processor Recall

If you plan to use a food processor for your holiday cooking, it is a good idea to make sure it does not have a potentially dangerous recall. Conair Corp. is recalling approximately eight million Cuisinart food processors.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the food processor’s riveted blade can crack over time and small metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food. The defect poses a laceration hazard to consumers. To date, 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.

The recalled Cuisinart food processors were sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide and on various websites from July 1996 through December 2015. They cost between $100 and $350.

The 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.

Given the serious risk of injury, consumers should immediately stop using the food processor’s riveted blade. They can then contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.

If you or someone you love has suffered serious harm due to a defective food processor or other household product, you may be entitled to compensation. For more information, please contact a San Diego product liability attorney at the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
