Cuisinart Food Processor Recall

Cuisinart food processors sold from July 1996 through December 2015 have been recalled due to a dangerous problem with the blades.

The riveted blades, held on by four rivets have come apart and broken pieces of the blade get into the food. At least 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries have been reported.
