A Stamford-based appliance distributor is recalling approximately 8 million units of Cuisinart food processors sold in the U.S. and Canada after receiving dozens of personal injury complaints, an article of cpsc.gov reported on December 13.
Conair Corp. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have been informed that the blades of the affected processors might chip while being used. If the problem occurs, small pieces of the blades could cause mouth injuries if mixed with processed food. The recalling company is aware of 69 incidents of blades getting broken and mixing with processed food, 30 of which resulted in personal injuries. Conair identified the 22 affected models and advised consumers to refrain from using the food processors while waiting for the free blade replacement they plan to provide.
