*ALERT*: 8 Million Food Processors Recalled
From mixers to blenders, Cuisinart has been a leader in kitchen appliances for decades.

This recall makes it the largest appliance recall in history.
Conair, the company that owns Cuisinart, has received 69 reports of people who found pieces of a blade in their food, and 30 reports of injury, the recall said. About 300,000 food processors in Canada are also affected.
