Cuisinart Recalls Food Processor Due to Laceration Risks

By Ross Jurewitz on December 9, 2013

At Jurewitz Law Group, our legal team recently learned that Cuisinart recently recalled several of its seven-cup food processors due to a hidden defect that increases the chances a user’s hands or face will be lacerated or cut while using the appliance. The slicing/shredding disc inside the food processor may come loose while the food processor is being used. If this happens, the disc may break the food processor’s cover, sending small, sharp pieces of plastic flying.

The Cuisinart food processors affected by the recall came in several colors, including black, white, and brushed chrome. The recalled food processors carry one of several model numbers, which are printed on the underside of the food processor. Food processors with any of the following model numbers have been recalled: MFP-107, MFP-107BC, MFP-107BCWS, MFP-107BK, MFP-107BKWS, MFP-107DCWS, MFP-107MGSLT, MFP-107MR, or MFP-107WS.

About 25,000 affected appliances were sold between October 2012 and June 2013 for about $100 each. Retailers like Sears, Belk, Best Buy, J.C. Penney, and Macy’s all carried the appliances, and they were also sold online through retailers like Zappos.com.

With the holidays well underway, many Californians have purchased these or other small appliances to give as gifts or to make holiday cooking and entertaining easier. It’s important to make sure that the appliances used or given as gifts this time of year are safe whenever possible.

Experienced San Diego product liability attorneys have seen many situations in which small appliances posed an unreasonable risk to users. Because the recalled Cuisinart might pose such a risk, users are advised to stop using the appliance immediately and contact Cuisinart to receive a free replacement disc and a new lid.
