Cuisinart has recalled eight million food processors due to defective riveted blades. The recall affects processors sold from July 1996 through December 2015.
There have been about 60 reports of people who have found that the rivets on the blades have cracked and small bits of metal appear in their food. Clearly this can be dangerous should you ingest a piece of jagged metal in fact there have been 30 reports of mouth or tooth injuries.
You should check the bottom of your machine for the model number and if it begins with one of the following numbers you should stop using the blades and contact Cuisinart for a replacement blade:
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 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."
We attempted to go to the website but it is evidently overwhelmed given this is the time of year when everyone is using their food processor!
