The products were sold in the US and Canada at specialty stores and on various website from July 1996 through December 2015, according to the statement.

Health Canada says as of the end of November, there have been 10 reports of cracked or broken riveted blades in Canada, including two reports of mouth laceration or tooth injury.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Conair has received 69 reports of consumers discovering broken pieces of the riveted blade in their food. According to a tweet from Scott Wolfson, communications director for the CPSC, it's the largest kitchen appliance recall in the agency's history. Given the food processor's popularity-and the fact that both I and Lifehacker's Editor-in-Chief Alan Henry own one-we figured we'd give you a warning.

Cuisinart food processors have become the latest product that could make for a holiday gift to be recalled by the CPSC this week.

The defective blades all have four rivets.

Jackie and her family say bullying is indeed to blame, though they always thought Brandy "brushed it off and didn't care". Raul said his family would pursue justice no matter how long it took. "And I will for years".

The blades in question have four rivets, are stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub.

Consumers should stop using the product and contact Conair about a replacement blade. The risk of malfunction and injury is too great to chance it, and since the replacement blade is free, there's no reason not to take advantage of this opportunity to protect yourself and your family.

"With the holiday season being here, a lot of people are pulling out their food processor and doing a lot of cooking", Crosswhite said.

Thirty-one-thousand scented candles made by Yankee Candle were recalled in December 2016.
