The manufacturer responsible for Cuisinart food processors is recalling eight million goods created after customer reports of blade pieces cracking and breaking off into the processed foods were received.
According to a report provided on Tuesday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Conair, the food processor’s riveted blade can crack over time, leading metal pieces of the blade to end up on the food and posing laceration hazards to the customers.
From the released statement, Conair collected sixty nine incidents of consumers discovering broken blade pieces in their food, along with 30 incidents of oral injuries (tooth injuries and cuts in the mouth).
The food processors were sold in Canada and the United States at speciality stores and on different websites starting from July of 1996 through December of last year, according to the report.
Customers should cease using the product and get in touch with Conair about getting a blade replacement.

It should also be noted that this week, a recall was also demanded for Yankee Candles that were found to pose laceration threats when lighted.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Massachusetts – based firm said that 31,000 from Yankee Candle’s Luminous Collection fragrance line were recalled.
When the candle is lit, the jar may break causing the danger. The Yankee Candle company said it has gotten 16 reports of the cracking-glass jar and that zero injuries have been reported.
