If you own a food processor, you need to check it before you use it again.

About eight million Cuisinart food processors are being recalled because the riveted blade can crack over time.

Once cracked, small, metal pieces of the blade may break off into the processed food.

The blades have four rivets and are silver-colored stainless steel. The center hub is made of beige plastic.

There have been 69 reports of consumers finding broken pieces of the blade in processed food.

There were 30 reports of mouth lacerations or tooth injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recalled model numbers begin with the following: 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.

They were sold at department, gourmet and specialty stores across the country and online from July 1996 through December 2015.

If you have one of the recalled models, you should replace it immediately.

You can call Cuisinart at 877-339-2534 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
