Hamilton Beach, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled its bébé brand baby food makers. According to 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.
The recall impacts about 790 units sold in the U.S. and about 3,100 in Canada. Consumers are advised to 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 steaming, chopping and pureeing, according to CPSC.
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.
The products were sold at Buy Buy Baby stores nationwide, through specialty distributor Victor Co. Inc. and online at Buybuybaby.com, Hamiltonbeach.com and Walmart.com from September 2013 through February 2014 for about $90.
