(WPRI) — Some Cuisinart Food Processors are being recalled after 69 reports of people finding that small pieces of the metal riveted blades had broken off and ended up in their food.

The company Conair has recalled eight million of its blenders sold from 1996 through 2015, costing anywhere between $100 and $350. About a dozen different model numbers were involved in the recall, according to the CPSC.

This recall involves the riveted blades in Cuisinart food processors with model numbers that begin with the following: 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. The model number is located on the bottom of the food processor. The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are included in this recall. Cuisinart is printed on the front and on the bottom of the food processors.

Of the 69 reports, 30 of them involved mouth and tooth injuries, said the CPSC.

Cuisinart came forward with a statement:

“We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation during this recall. Cuisinart is proud to consistently produce high-quality appliances and we assure you that we will continue to strive to meet your expectations and high standards for quality products.”

If you have one of these processors, stop using the riveted blade immediately and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement.
