25,000 Food Processors Recalled By Cuisinart Over Laceration Risk
The Stamford, Connecticut-based Cuisinart has announced the recall of nine different types of food processors that are designed to hold seven cups’ worth of food. 25,000 items are affected by the recall, and they would have been available around the country between October of last year and this past June. While the processors are on, the slicing disc can be partially dislodged, leading the blade to potentially make contact with the plastic casing. Pieces of plastic could then be flung outward to strike users. One person has reported being struck by such a piece of debris, although they apparently did not need to seek medical help. The processors should not be used until a new lid and slicing disc can be obtained from Cuisinart.
