If you bought a Cuisinart food processor between the dates of July 1996 and December 2015, your powerful piece of kitchen equipment might be a part of Cuisinart’s recently announced a voluntary recall.

The machines with reported issues are ones with four rivets in the blades around a beige cap. ABC 13 reports that over time the blades can crack and even break off into the food. NPR writes that 8 million of these machines were sold throughout the years. Their report states, “69 consumers reported finding broken pieces of blade in their food. That includes 30 cases that caused mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.”

Anyone who has used a food processor knows that the blade is perhaps the most important part and the component that needs the most care when handling the machine. Learning about a flaw in the riveted blades might alarm many users, but Cuisinart has detailed information and photos available on their official website to make the recall go as smoothly as possible.
