This holiday season a number of companies have issued recalls for some of their products citing different problems. The recalled products include Cuisinart food processors, Yankee Candle, as well as Duncan Hines cake mixes.

Here is all you need to know about the recalls and your options if you own one of these products:

Cuisinart food processors

Almost 8 million Cuisinart food processors have been recalled by the company as parts of the kitchen appliance’s blades could break and mix with the food. The recall includes dozens of models sold between July 1996 and December 2015.

“The food processor’s riveted blade can crack over time and small, metal pieces of the blade can break off into the processed food,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said while announcing the recall Tuesday. “This poses a laceration hazard to consumers.”

At least 30 instances of injury have been reported to Conair, Cuisinart’s parent company, which has gotten at least 69 reports of people finding blades in their food.

The models affected are — 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.

People owning any of these models have been encouraged to contact Cuisinart to get free blades as replacement for the malfunctioning ones. Consumers can call 877-339-2534 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST on weekends. However, there was no information about a refund.

Yankee Candle

Tens of thousands of candles are being recalled by Yankee Candle after reports of a potential safety hazard in connection with one of its new product lines, the company announced Thursday.

Yankee Candle reportedly received about 16 complaints from customers who bought the company’s new Luminous Collection candles saying the candle’s encasing cracked from the heat when lit, exposing sharp shards of glass.

The CPSC estimated the recall would affect almost 31,000 units in the U.S. and about 300 more sold in Canada between September and November, while no injuries have yet been reported as a result of the defect.

The affected fragrances include Sea Salt & Coral, Blackberry & Sage, Apple Blossom & Melon, Sugarcane & Honey, Pine & Sandalwood and Cinnamon & Cedar.

Duncan Hines cake mix

Pinnacle Foods Canada Corp. on Wednesday issued a recall for Duncan Hines cake mix — Apple Caramel — because of possible Salmonella contamination.

“Consumers should not consume the recalled product described below. Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased,” according to the recall notice posted on the website of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

No illnesses had been reported to the company.
