After reports of food processor blades cracking and shedding small, metal pieces, Conair has recalled 8 million Cuisinart products dating back to 1996.
In a release published by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the popular appliance company stated the reasoning behind the voluntary recall was an unlikely but potentially dangerous health hazard. "The food processor's riveted blade can crack over time and small, metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food. This poses a laceration hazard to customers," the release states.
