You may have to temporarily eat your tuna salad in chunks rather than pulverized to a fine pulp if you own one of the 8 million food processors Cuisinart is recalling. Per CBS News, the voluntary pullback involves processors sold for the past 20 years (from 1996 to 2015), and it's come down to the riveted blade, which can crack and cause tiny metal pieces to end up in processed food and possibly cause lacerations. Consumers can see which models are affected and further details on the Consumer Product Safety Commission's website; a free replacement blade is available by calling 877-339-2534 (see CPSC site for hours). (Another recent recall: bottles of craft paint.)
