Hamilton Beach bébé 5-Cup Baby Food Maker Recall

For those who own a bébé brand baby food makers manufactured by Hamilton Beach, there has been a recall! This recall involves bébé baby food makers sold by various retailers nationwide and online from September 2013 through February 2014. 

According to Hamilton Beach, use of the slicing/shredding disc with the motor shaft adapter can cause the stainless steel pin in the food bowl lid to loosen and fall into processed food making it a choking hazard. Consumers may continue to use the Baby Food Maker for steaming, chopping and pureeing.

The food maker has a white and gray motor base with an orange control knob, a clear plastic, five-cup food bowl and a gray-colored food bowl lid with a built-in food chute. “Hamilton Beach” and “bébé” are on the front of the motor base. The food maker comes with the following accessories: a chopping and mixing blade, a slicing and shredding disc, a removable motor shaft adapter, a food pusher, a three cup steaming basket, 10 storage containers and two storage container caddies.

If you have one of these or know someone who does, contact Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc for a free repair kit. 

To find out whether or not your baby food maker is subject to this recall you can call Hamilton Beach toll free at 1.800.672.5872 from 8AM to 4PM EST, Monday through Friday.

You can also email them at customer.service@hamiltonbeach.com if you're in the US or Canadian.service@hamiltonbeach.com if you're in Canada.

  1. Oh no, thanks for the heads up! I will forward this to my sisters in law & friends with babies in case they have one!

  2. Thanks for letting us know about this recall! I'll pass this on to my friends who have these.

  3. Ek so scary when things are recalled that you rely on! Thank you for bringing it to my attention. x

  4. Never got one of these, we just had the baby bullet. Thankfully I don't think we've ever had any of our baby stuff recalled!

  5. I never bothered with one of these baby food makers. I find it wasn't necessary at all.

  6. so many products being re called you would think by now that there would be higher standard testing guidelines.

  7. What a great way to make your own homemade baby food. Also a great way to know exactly what baby is eating.

  8. Yikes! Thanks for the heads up! I'm glad it was caught, especially since the machine has a large part to do with feeding babies!

  9. Hard to keep up with all the recalls isn't it? Thankfully this is not one I have to be concerned about personally but hope no one is hurt from this issue.
