    A New Jersey police officer is credited with rescuing three deer in the past year. He is now affectionately known as "The Deer Whisperer," and his latest rescue was caught on camera. The cute baby deer was trapped in a storm drain. Officer Timothy Majek, a 22 year veteran of the Woodbridge Police Department, quickly came to the rescue. Majek, a self-professed animal lover, jumped into the drain and lifted the fawn to safety.

    Food processors were sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores nationwide, and on various websites from July 1996 to December 2015.

    Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the food processor's riveted blade and to contact Cuisinart for a free replacement blade.
