About 8 million food processors sold nationwide are being recalled by a Stamford-based company due to concerns that their blades could break over time and inflict injuries on consumers, a December 13 article of cpsc.gov stated.
According to reports, Conair Corp. will replace the riveted blades of 22 models of Cuisinart food processors after receiving 69 reports of incidents involving blades chipping during use. Metal bits from the broken blade could mix with the processed food and result in personal injuries. The recalling company received 30 consumer complaints of mouth injuries caused by the broken blade pieces getting into food. Consumers who own the affected food processors were advised to refrain from using the product until the blade is replaced with a new one.
