Cusinart recently recalled over 25,000 of its 7-cup food processors.
According to the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC), the reversible slicing/shredding disc may come loose, causing the blade to hit the food processor’s cover and break.
As a result, shards of plastic go flying. One person reported to Cusinart that they were struck in the cheek by a shard of the plastic. No medical attention was sought.
