Additional information:
The UK Chartered Trading Standards Institute (“CTSI”) reports the following Food Processors are subject to this recall:

  • Simple Value Food Processor, White catalogue number: 423/5345. No UPC, barcode or other identification was released with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Food Processors is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CTSI, Argos reports it is possible to bypass the Safety Interlock device if the Safety Interlock Mechanism on the lid of the recalled Simple Value Food Processor breaks.

If this happens, the broken part can become trapped and defeat the Safety Interlock Mechanism and, in turn, allow the Food Processor to be operated with the lid removed. If this occurs, the user or those nearby can suffer life-changing injuries.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Food Processors, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
