This December, Conair, the company that produces Cuisinart food processors,
has recalled nearly 8 million food processors due to laceration hazards.
The blades are reported to crack over time and break off into food. So
far, there have been 69 separate reports of injuries caused by small pieces
of the blades breaking off lodging themselves in food. Another 30 cases
of mouth lacerations and tooth injuries have occurred from fractured metal.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Cuisinart models purchased
between July 1996 and December 2015 are all included on the list of affected
models. The affected blades have four, stainless steel rivets and a tan
plastic stick at the center.
The model numbers included are 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.
If your food processor was listed as one of the affected, the CPSC recommends
you stop using the product immediately. Contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.
Can I file a lawsuit for my Cuisinart food processor injury?
Yes, if you were injured after using a Cuisinart food processor that was
listed as using defective blades, you could file a claim for compensation
for your injuries. At The Weinstein Firm, LLC., we believe those injured
by the negligence or defect in manufacturing have the right to fight for
justice after their injuries.
