Millions of potentially hazardous food processors recalled

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.

Sabra hummus contaminated with listeria recalled

A New York-based company is recalling their hummus products distributed in the U.S. and in Canada due to concerns that they may be contaminated with listeria bacteria, a report of USA Today stated on November 21.

According to reports, a voluntary recall was issued by Sabra Dipping Co. on some of their hummus products after Food and Drug Administration agents detected listeria bacteria in their food processing facility. The recall was issued even after the FDA reported that traces of listeria were not found in the finished products. Sabra received no notifications of incidents of injuries or illnesses linked to the affected hummus products before the recall was issued. A food recall is not new to Sabra; they also recalled their products last year due to the same problem.
