In corporation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), electric housewares maker Ultimate Chopper LLC recalled an estimated 1.5 million Ultimate Chopper(TM) food processors.

According to the company, the interlocking lid on the appliance can malfunction, allowing the food processor to be operated when the lid is off, resulting in a laceration or finger tip amputation hazard if consumers insert their hands into the food processor.

CPSC and Ultimate Chopper LLC received 17 reports of injuries resulting from a failure of the interlocking lid assembly or the blade assembly breaking. Five of those injured required stitches or surgery, and the remaining 12 consumers received cuts or scratches.

The Ultimate Chopper is a single-speed food processor that can also function as a blender when an optional attachment is used with the base. The product is comprised of a white base unit with a 600-W motor, a plastic blade assembly that contains two stainless steel blades, a chopping bowl, and a clear, interlocking lid. The name “Ultimate Chopper” is stamped on the product’s base.

The food processor was sold throughout the U.S. from March 2002 to July 2005 for an estimated U.S. $40.
