We often learn of recalled items but this one has to be one of the broadest ever. Cuisinart is recalling 8 million food processors sold over the last 20 years. The voluntary recall involves some Cuisinart food processors sold from 1996 through December 2015 as pieces of the riveted blades may crack and break off into the food it is chopping. The recall affects only 22 models with four rivets in the blades and have a beige plastic center hub. Conair, the maker of Cuisinart food processors, has received 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries. Consumers with one of these models (see below for model numbers) should immediately stop use and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade at www.cuisinart.com or by calling 877-339-2534. The recall affects models that begin with:

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.

You can find the model number on the bottom of the food processor.
