Consumer Alert: Cuisinart Food Processor Recall Lawsuits?

The company that makes a popular food processor has issued a recall involving more than eight million Cuisinarts in Canada and the USA because their blades may break off over time and leave sharp pieces of jagged metal in the food.

These are the list of affected Cuisinart's model numbers which can be found at the bottom of the food processors: 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.

A Cuisinart recall is being issued to avoid any more injuries.

Although the company made concerns about the blade public this week, there are indications that Cuisinart had been told about the problem years earlier, New York Times said.

Consumers should immediately stop using the food processors' riveted blade and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.

The manufacturer of Cuisinart food processors should brace itself for consumer lawsuits and regulatory investigations.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said there have been 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries from the broken blades.

If you own a food processor, there's a pretty good chance it's a Cuisinart. The blade has four rivets positioned around a beige center cap.

The products were sold between July 1996 and December 2015.

Consumers also posted warnings to other shoppers on websites like Amazon as early as 2012. The blades of the Cuisinart food processors reportedly disintegrated and got mixed with the food. The Yankee Candle voluntarily recalling about 31,000 of its "Luminous Collection" candles after it received 16 reports of the glass jars cracking.
