If you're among the 70 percent of women (as estimated by a survey from MomTV.com) who make your own baby food, you may want to double check the manufacturer and model of your baby food processor. The CPSC recently warned owners of the Hamilton Beach Bebe food processor that they could be using a faulty machine.
The small processor contains a stainless steel pin that can become loose and fall into the processed food. There have been four incidents of the pin loosening with no injuries to report. Consumers are urged to stop using the slicing/shredding disc and contact Hamilton Beach at 800-672-5872 or via their web site for free replacement parts.
The manufacturer assures owners the baby food maker is still safe to use for steaming, pureeing, and chopping.
