Planning to Use a Food Processor for Holiday Meals? Check It for Recalls First

Consumer ProductsAll across the country, families are preparing for the holidays. They are doing their last-minute shopping, finalizing travel plans, and getting their cooking gadgets ready for a holiday feast. Unfortunately, this last item may require an extra step this year. Holiday chefs will need to check their food processors for possible recalls. Gift-givers may want to look at the recalls as well (just in case). The following tells you what you need to know about the recent food processor recalls, and explains what you should do if you or someone you love suffers an injury because of a defective product.

Cuisinart Recalls Eight Million Food Processors

Conair, the Cuisinart food processor parent company, has issued a recall on more than eight million food processors. They say that the S-shaped, riveted blade on the affected models break down over time. This can result in pieces of the blade breaking while chopping food, which could cause consumer death or injury. In fact, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there have been at least 69 reports of broken blades and at least 30 injuries involving broken teeth and lacerations in the mouth. No deaths have been reported at this time. Yet the propensity is still there.

When Defective Products Lead to Death or Serious Injury

Consumers have a right to expect safe products. When manufacturers fail to meet those expectations, they can be held liable for the serious injury or death that their negligence has caused. Unfortunately, pursuing that compensation is a difficult process – one full of complex legalities and a team of attorneys who will do almost anything they can to minimize the damage for their multi-billion dollar clients. Some may even go so far as to further victimize the injured individual who, at the end of the day, only wants to be compensated for their expenses, losses, and pain.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product, it is important to ensure that your rights and best interests are protected. Skilled in handling defective product claims and dedicated to helping you get the compensation that you deserve, Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, LLP can help. We will fight for you, every step of the way. Learn more by scheduling a consultation with our seasoned San Jose defective product lawyers. Call (408) 289-1417 today.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
