Colorado consumers rely on companies to manufacture products that are safe and reliable. However, there are times when defective household products slip into the market unnoticed until it is brought to a company's attention. At that point, a recall may be issued to take dangerous products off the market. Recently, Cuisinart joined the list of companies having to recall one of its products because it poses a danger to the public.
The product is Cuisinart's seven-cup food processor. There is a danger that the reversible slicing/shredding disc can become loose while the product is in use. The blade can then shatter the food processor's cover sending plastic flying and injuring the user. Consumers that own this product are encouraged to stop using it immediately.
The food processors were sold nationwide and online and cost approximately $100. Nine models of this particular Cuisinart product are subject to this recall. Consumers may contact the company to determine if their model is one that is part of the recall. If it is, Cuisinart will replace both the lid and disc free of charge.
So far, the company has only been made aware of one injury due to this defect. However, as is the case with other defective household products, more injuries could occur. If serious injuries occur from a product such as this Cuisinart seven-cup food processor, Colorado consumers may file a products liability claim requesting financial restitution for any damages, such as medical bills and pain and suffering, they may have incurred as a result of being injured.
