News of the largest recall of a consumer product ever hit the papers today. Sure enough, when I checked our food processor it had one of the defective blades and, as you can see in the photo below, it was cracked.
It would be only a matter of time before the piece between the rivets broke free and got chopped up in the food. So if you have a Cuisinart food processor,look at the blade to see if it has rivets. If it does, go to this web page and follow the recall instructions: https://recall.cuisinart.com/.
You will need the information from the label on the bottom of the Cuisinart; an easy way to copy it is to snap a picture with your phone. DO NOT USE YOUR CUISINART if it has riveted blades. Get the free replacement blade through the recall program. (I don’t think anything good happens when these blades fail and come apart!)
