Cuisinart Issues Food Processor Recall For Select 7-Quart Models

Friday November 22nd, 2013 - 10:05AM

Cuisinart, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall on nine 7-quart food processor models including models MFP-107, MFP-107BC, MFP-107BCWS, MFP-107BK, MFP-107BKWS, MFP-107DCWS, MFP-107MGSLT, MFP-107MR or MFP-107WS.  According to CPSC, the reversible slicing/shredding disc on the units can loosen when in use and the blade can strike and break the food processor's cover. The cover's broken plastic pieces can hit consumers, posing a laceration hazard.

Cuisinart has received one report of an incident involving a consumer being struck on the cheek by a piece of the food processor's plastic cover that cracked off while the reversible slicing disc was being used. No medical attention was sought, according to CPSC.  

The units in question, approximately 25,000, according to CPSC, were sold at Belk, Best Buy, Dillards, J.C. Penney, Macy's, Sears, Williams-Sonoma and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and Zappos.com from October 2012 through June 2013 for about $100.

The food processors were sold in white, black, brush chrome, metallic gray, metallic red and silver colors. They have a seven cup plastic work bowl and three push buttons "On," "Pulse" and "Off."  Cuisinart is stamped on the front.

Consumers are being advised to immediately stop using the recalled food processors and contact Cuisinart to receive a free replacement lid and reversible slicing/shredding disc.
