November 21, 2013: Cuisinart Recalls 7-Cup Food Processor
What’s the Deal?
Cuisinart has determined that their 7-cup food processor machines may pose a laceration hazard. The company has determined that the reversible slicing/shredding disc can loosen when in use and the blade can strike and break the food processor’s cover. This was discovered after one consumer reported being struck on the cheek by a piece of the plastic cover while using the processor. The injury was not serious and no medical attention was sought.

This recall involves nine of Cuisinart food processors models including, MFP-107, MFP-107BC, MFP-107BCWS, MFP-107BK, MFP-107BKWS, MFP-107DCWS, MFP-107MGSLT, MFP-107MR or MFP-107WS. Consumers can find the model number on the underside of the food processor’s base. They were sold in white, black, brush chrome, metallic gray, metallic red and silver colors Cuisinart stamped on the front. They come with a seven cup plastic work bowl and three push buttons “On,” “Pulse” and “Off.”
The processors 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.
