WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Cuisinart says they have recalled their 7-cup food processor due to a laceration hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the reversible slicing disc can loosen when in use and the blade can strike and break the food processor's cover. The company has received one report of an incident where a consumer was struck on the cheek by a piece of the food processor's cover.
The food processors are sold are Belk, Best Buy, Dillards, JC Penney, Macy's, Sears, and other stores nationwide.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the food processors and contact Cuisinart to receive a free replacement lid and reversible slicing disc. For more information visit Cusiinart's webpage here.
