Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Bébé brand Baby Food makers manufactured by Hamilton Beach.

The Bébé Baby Food Maker is a small food processor. It has a white and gray motor base with an orange control knob, a clear plastic, five-cup food bowl and a gray-colored food bowl lid with a built-in food chute (see photo above). The words, “Hamilton Beach” and “bébé” are printed on the front of the motor base. The recalled Food Maker comes with the following accessories: a chopping and mixing blade, a slicing and shredding disc, a removable motor shaft adapter, a food pusher, a three-cup steaming basket, 10 storage containers and two storage container caddies.

According to the CPSC, use of the slicing/shredding disc with the motor shaft adapter can cause the stainless steel pin in the food bowl lid to loosen and fall into processed food. Hamilton Beach has received four reports of the stainless steel pin in the food bowl lid becoming loose, including three in which the pin fell into processed food. There have been no reports of injuries or property damage.

Consumers should immediately stop using the slicing/shredding disc and contact Hamilton Beach to receive a free replacement food bowl lid, motor shaft adapter and slicing/shredding disc. Consumers may continue to use the Baby Food Maker for activities other than outlined above including steaming, chopping and pureeing.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
