There have been 69 reported incidents of consumers finding broken blade pieces in food and at least thirty reported injuries of tooth injuries and mouth lacerations.
The recalled units were sold from July 1996 through December 2015. The model numbers included in the recall are: 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.
