    About eight million Cuisinart food processors are being recalled after dozens of reports of customers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    Conair Corp., of Stamford, Connecticut, which is the owner of the Cuisinart brand, said it received 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food, including 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries.

    The recall includes the riveted blades in Cuisinart food processors. The blades are silver-colored stainless steel and have a beige plastic center hub. Only food processors with four rivets in the blades are under recall.

    [NATL] Do Cats Actually Love Their Humans?

    Does your little feline friend actually love you, or are they just using you for food? Scientists from Oregon State University isolated 50 cats, depriving them of all stimuli before reintroducing four things: human interaction, food, scent and toys.

    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.
