NEW YORK — About eight million Cuisinart food processors are being recalled due to laceration hazards. The blades can crack over time and small metal pieces can then break off into your processed food.

The voluntary recall involves some Cuisinart food processors sold from 1996 through December 2015. The recall involves the riveted blades in Cuisinart food processors with model numbers that begin with the following:

CFP-9, CFP-11, DFP-7, DFP-11, DFP-14, DLC-5, DLC-7, DLC-8, DLC-10, DLC-XP, DLC-2007, DLC-2009, DLC-2011, DLC-2014, DLC-3011, DLC-3014, EV-7, EV-10, EV-11, EV-14, KFP-7 and MP-14.

The model number is located on the bottom of the food processor. The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are included in this recall. Cuisinart is printed on the front and on the bottom of the food processors.

Consumers with the problematic models should immediately stop use and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.
