Stamford, CT – Following the announcement on December 13, 2016 of a voluntary recall of riveted blades contained in certain Cuisinart® food processors, Conair (Cuisinart’s parent company) is addressing the following specifics regarding the recall:
1. This voluntary recall does not affect food processor units or any other parts or accessories – only the riveted blades are being recalled. All food processor units and other parts and accessories may continue to be used.
2. The recall does not affect all Cuisinart food processor models; it only affects the models identified in the press release the company issued on December 13 in conjunction with the CPSC. This release is available here: http://prn.to/2hFuGIb
3. The following Cuisinart food processors currently sold in stores do not have a riveted blade and are not part of this recall:
• Model numbers beginning with “FP” or
• Model numbers beginning with “DLC-6” or
• Model numbers ending with a “Y”
4. The number of reported incidents related to the riveted blade is very small when taking into account the total number of riveted blades sold and the many years of distribution. Conair and Cuisinart take the safety of their customers very seriously, which is why they brought this to the attention of the CPSC and commenced a voluntary recall.
