Today I’m sharing a video I created in response to the current Cuisinart Food Processor Blade Recall. My goal is to help you avoid confusion and get straight to the source of the recall so you’ll know how to find out if your model is affected. In other words, don’t panic, but DO take action if you bought a Cuisinart food processor in the last 20 years. Yep, 20 years.
Cuisinart Food Processor Blade Recall: How to Find Out If Your Model Is Affected
This appears to be a pretty massive safety recall affecting several million units of Cuisinart food processors purchased between the mid 90’s to 2015. This recall is specific to units with “riveted” blades.
What makes this a “safety” recall?
It has been reported that pieces of blade are breaking off into the processed food, causing potential mouth laceration injuries. But, to clarify, not all blades…and not entire units are recalled, only riveted blades from certain models (listed in full at on Cuisinart.com Product Recalls page).
So, I made the video to help you efficiently navigate the situation…
- An interactive form to determine if your model has been recalled, including a contact form to submit your mailing address to receive a new blade.
- A safety recall poster with instructions to find your unit model numbers and blade identification
- A press release announcing the recall
- A letter to consumers
Once you’re on the Product Recall page, there are resources to help you determine if your appliance is affected, instructions to discontinue use, and instructions to receive a replacement blade. It’s all there. There’s even a section on how to safely dispose of the recalled blade.
In this video, I also indicated that my Cuisinart 7-cup Pro Classic Food Processor was not among the recalled units. If it was, I’d gladly hop on their site and file the report to receive my new blade. To say “I love my food processor” would be an understatement in this case…because I really do!
