CPSC, Cuisinart Recalls Food Processors for Laceration Hazards
11/21/2013 // WPB, FL, USA // Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley // (press release)
New York, N.Y.—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Cuisinart has voluntarily recalled Cuisinart 7-cup food processors for laceration hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on November 21, 2013.
The food processors were recalled after discovering that the reversible slicing/shredding disc can loosen while in use, causing the blade to strike and break the food processor’s cover. The cover’s broken plastic pieces pose a laceration hazard to consumers.
“This recall involves nine models of Cuisinart food processors including, MFP-107, MFP-107BC, MFP-107BCWS, MFP-107BK, MFP-107BKWS, MFP-107DCWS, MFP-107MGSLT, MFP-107MR or MFP-107WS. The model number is on the underside of the food processor base. The food processors were sold in white, black, brush chrome, metallic gray, metallic red and silver colors. They have a seven cup plastic work bowl and three push buttons ‘On,’ ‘Pulse’ and ‘Off.’ Cuisinart is stamped on the front,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Cuisinart for a free replacement lid and reversible slicing/shredding disc.
