Broken blades in food leaves Cuisinart recalling 8 million food processors

Dozens of people found broken pieces of metal blades inside their food after using these Cuisinart food processors.

No one wants to find random stuff in their food, but metal blades might be the worst possible thing to dig up. That’s exactly what happened to quite a few people using Cuisinart food processors.

Eight million of those blenders are now being recalled by Cuisinart’s parent company, Conair.

There have been at least 69 reports of people finding tiny pieces of broken metal blades inside their food after using the food processors, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The millions of recalled food processors were sold over a nearly 20-year span, from July 1996 through December 2015.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the food processors riveted blade and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade,” the CPSC wrote on its website.

On Cuisinart’s own website, the company explains how you can determine whether your food processor was recalled.

The commission also explained which model numbers are affected and said these numbers can be found on the bottom of the food processor. Only those processors that have four rivets in the blades are included in the recall, the commission added.

If you happen to be one of the many unlucky buyers, a new blade is waiting for you just hopefully not in your food.
