Cuisinart has issued a voluntary recall for about 8 million food processors because of a risk of the blade cracking and breaking off into food, according to a release from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued Tuesday. Conair, the company that owns Cuisinart, has received 69 reports of people who found pieces of a blade in their food, and 30 reports of injury, the recall said. About 300,000 food processors in Canada are also affected.

The recall involves food processors with model numbers that begin with the following (the model number's on the bottom of the food processor):

  • CFP-9
  • CFP-11
  • DFP-7
  • DFP-11
  • DFP-14

The blades on the affected units have four rivets, are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center.
