Walmart is recalling about 255,000 General Electric food processors because the safety interlock system on the recalled food processor can fail, allowing operation without the lid secured which poses a laceration hazard. Also, the product can emit smoke, or catch fire, posing a fire hazard.
Walmart has received a total of 58 incident reports: 24 reports of the food processor operating without the lid in place, of which 21 resulted in injuries to fingertips; and 34 reports of the unit smoking, including three reports of fires.
This recall involves GE-branded digital, 14-cup food processors. The food processors are black with stainless steel trim, and model number 169203 is imprinted on the underside of the unit.
The food processors were sold at Walmart stores nationwide and on Walmart’s website from September 2009 through February 2011 for a retail price of about $50.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled food processor and return the product to any Walmart for a full refund.
