Cuisinart/Conair issues immediate product recall.


A joint recall between Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Conair Consumer Products ULC has issued a recall of the large riveted cutting blade for its food processors sold between 1996 and December 2015.    This is a very popular food processor with over 300,000 being sold in Canada.

Here’s the blade from our Kitchen

The blades have four rivets and are silver-coloured stainless steel and have a beige plastic centre hub. Only the blades with four rivets in the food processor series noted above are included in this recall. Cuisinart is printed on the front and on the bottom of the food processors.  The rivets are either the underside of the top side and fits these food processors.  CFP-11, DFP-11, DLC-2011, DLC-8, EV-11, DFP-7, DLC-10, DLC-2007, DLC-2009, DLC-5, EV-10, EV-7, DFP-14, DLC-2014, DLC-7, MP-14 and DLC-XP Series machines.

It appears that the blade breaks at the rivets, and pieces can fly off into the food.  Here’s a close up of our families blade in the areas that appear to fail.
