The maker of Cuisinart food processors is recalling 300,000 models in Canada and 8 million models in the U.S. due to a laceration hazard.
Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the voluntary wellbeing review includes eight million food processors in the U.S. what’s more, an extra 300,000 in Canada, in light of the fact that their blades may break off after some time and leave sharp bits of jagged metal in the food.
Conair, the maker of Cuisinart, has gotten 10 reports of cracked or broken riveted blades in Canada, including two reports of mouth laceration or tooth damage. In the U.S., there are 69 known reports of shoppers finding broken bits of the blade in prepared food, including 30 referring to mouth lacerations or tooth wounds.
Just processors with four rivets in the blades are incorporated into the recall.
The review just applies to food processors with the model numbers that start with the following:
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, EV-7, EV-10, EV-11, and MP-14.
Model numbers are situated on the base of the food processor.
