    About eight million Cuisinart food processors are being recalled after dozens of reports of customers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    Conair Corp., of Stamford, Connecticut, which is the owner of the Cuisinart brand, said it received 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.

    The recall includes the riveted blades in Cuisinart food processors. The blades are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are under recall.

    The model numbers under recall, which can be found on the bottom of the food processors, include 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.

    [NATL] Parkland Shooting Survivor Calls 'BS' on Politicians' Gun Stance

    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High senior Emma Gonzalez had a message for president Donald Trump and for other politicians on their failure to enact sensible gun laws: "BS." Gonzalez was one of several survivors to speak at a rally held outside the Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to speak out against the gun lobby.

    Food processors were sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide, and on various websites from July 1996 to December 2015.

    Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the food processor's riveted blade and to contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.
