My Cuisinart got a pretty big workout over Thanksgiving weekend. And as far as I know, none of my guests chomped down on a broken piece of blade. Nevertheless, the company has just announced that it's recalling more than 8 million of its riveted food processor blades for just that reason.
Apparently, the blades can crack over time and small metal pieces can break off, posing a laceration hazard to consumers. Or in other words, you might bite down and unexpectedly cut up your mouth or worse, break a tooth. So here's what you need to know:
The recall involves the riveted blades in Cuisinart food processors with model numbers—located on the bottom of the food processor—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.
If you have one of these models in your home, stop using it immediately and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade at 877-339-2534, or online at www.cuisinart.com\recall.
