Calling all Cuisinart Food Processor owners!

If you purchased a Cuisinart food processor from July 1996 through December 2015 for between $100-$350, take note of this recall! Cuisinart is recalling about 8 million units sold in the United States due to a possible laceration hazard. There have been 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.

If you own one of these processors, you should immediately stop using the food processor’s riveted blade and contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade – only food processors with four rivets in the blades are included in this recall.

If you have questions, call Cuisinart toll-free at 877-339-2534 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday or click here and click on Product Recalls at the bottom of the page for more information. Note that the Cuisinart site is moving very slowly!

This 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.

(Thanks, Karen!)

  2. Jennifer

    That’s scary

  3. SONYA

    I have the model on the left! I’ll use my blender until the replacement blade arrives. Better safe than sorry…

  4. Stephanie

    Uh oh! I have one of those, glad we haven’t had a problem thus far.

  5. Vivian

    That’s so scary!!!

  6. Rhonda

    I own that exact model and this happened to me three years ago. I found a piece of the blade in my mouth, thankfully there was no injuries. I contacted the company and they sent a new blade. I can’t believe it took this long for them to do a recall.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh darn! Sorry to hear about that! Glad you were ok!

  7. Stephanie

    Yeah the website is running slow. I can’t even get it to load!

    • Geo

      I can’t get the site to load either. I’m sure the traffic will drop off after the initial rush.

      • Geo

        No problem submitting today ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Bummer! Maybe wait a bit and try again!

  8. Tricia

    Bought mine one year ago. Fortunately it doesn’t have that blade.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  9. Allison

    I have the one on the right, and mine is missing a chunk of the metal blade! Thank you for posting Collin! I will keep trying to get thru, website is soooo slow and phone line is busy!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Allison!

  10. Jeanette

    thank you! i have one of those! will be following up. . thanks for the info!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  11. Beth

    Thank you for the heads up! I had one of the blades and was able to submit my information for a replacement. The website’s crazy slow so it took a few tries.

  12. Julia

    Thanks. I bought DLC-2007 three years ago.

  13. Mel

    I have the one on the left. I use it ALL THE TIME! I always inspect my blades before and after use. But super scary that the metal can break apart.

  14. hnaim

    scary! I have the left one too

  15. Amber Pena

    My model isn’t listed in the recall, but a triangular piece of the blade DID break off very shortly after we purchased it. I found it in my food (luckily it was in my serving and not one of my kids’). Interesting that my model isn’t listed even though it has 4 rivets and it has broken just as described… :/

  16. Brooke

    My model is listed (dlc-5), and I would’ve never noticed that the blade is cracked all the way across on the bottom of one blade ๐Ÿ™
    Thanks for posting this!

  17. Jean

    Thanks! I’m kind of shocked that my old food processor has the riveted blade and is part of the recall. Just requested my replacement blade.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Jean!

  18. jenny

    just checked my model in the list too. thanks Collin.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome!

  19. PDX to OGG Mama

    Wow, their phone lines direct you to their website and their website isn’t loading…ugh! Thanks H2S, I wouldn’t have known about the recall if it wasn’t for you gals!!

  20. monialicia

    I found a broken piece a couple years ago while I was making baby food. Called the company and they not only said it wasn’t their problem they also made me pay for a new blade.

  21. Elizabeth

    Thanks for the info! I just checked and I have that blade. I’ll try again tomorrow and hopefully the website will be running smoothly to get a new blade ordered. Scary, we make food that our three tiny kids eat in that thing! Glad we have been safe so far.

  22. Alissa

    Oh how I love my food processor! Glad they’re offering a replacement blade – horrible injuries ๐Ÿ™

  23. c

    I actually purchased the one on the right from Amazon a few months ago. I had to return it because I couldn’t confirm whether or not it was the new model or old model. When I contacted Cuisinart customer service about it, the lady on the phone sounded nervous and suspicious. She refused to answer any of my questions. It’s as if she knew something was wrong with it. I’ve never seen a company act that shady before. Cuisinart can’t be trusted. I’m surprised a class action lawsuit hasn’t been filed yet.

  24. Jen

    Thank you! I have one of the recalled models, and just submitted for the replacement blade online. I would have never known if I hadn’t seen it here.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re most welcome!

  25. Melanie Odette

    Oh, man, we have that one. Thank you for posting this!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  26. Connie

    I have one too!

    • Mike

      My blade blew up months ago and I didn’t keep it can I still get a replacement?

  27. Amy

    Thanks for posting this!!! I had heard about in passing but didn’t pay much attention….so glad I read your post mine is on the list!! And with all the holiday baking and cooking coming I would have been using it a lot!!! So scary!!!!!
    My husband always jokes when I tell him how much money I save he knows it came from H2S now I can tell him you saved the holidays as well!!!!

  28. Joelle

    Thank you for posting this. If you hadn’t I would never have known. I filled out the online form and I listed your site for “How I heard of the recall” I hope that is okay. Thanks again.
