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.
