Australia/Canberra: Conair Australia Pty Ltd recalls certain batch/lots of Cuisinart Food Processors due to suspected blade breakage and consequential ingestion and internal laceration hazards. ACCC: http://ht.ly/4tU2308fuz3
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Food Processors are subject to this recall:
- This recall involves the riveted blades only, which are found in Cuisinart Food Processors with the following model numbers:
==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs, or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.
The model number is located on the bottom of the recalled Food Processor. The blades have four rivets and are silver colored stainless steel with a beige plastic centre 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.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Food Processors are pictured on the Web site above.
According to the ACCC, the recalled Food Processor’s riveted blade can crack over time and small metal pieces of the blade can break off during use. If the defect occurs, pieces of the metal blade may be present in the processed food, posing an internal laceration hazard.
If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.
==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect food.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Cuisinart Food Processor, please do not use them to prepare your food. Instead, kindly contact Cuisinart Australia on 1800 808 971 for a free replacement blade.
