WASHINGTON, May 25 (UPI) -- Walmart Stores Inc., is recalling 255,000 General Electric food processors with safety systems that can fail, a U.S. consumer watchdog agency said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the 14-cup food processors, model No. 169203, have safety interlock systems that can allow the appliance to work without a lid in place.

Wonder if GE has started outsourcing. Ever since companies have started this, we've lost some serious quality control in our products.

That model is not manufactured by GE. Its manufactured in China and GE license their name to be on it. It is not the same as the ones sold in Target or Sears or any other retailer (those are GE products). Only the ones manufactured for Walmart (they use inferior componets to keep walmarts price low) are in the recall. Some of these inferior product may have been made at a shadow factory and sold by internet sites. Since those type of places do not report defects (they don;t even let you know its a back alley product), if you bought one from a none major chain internet site, it could have the same problem. If at all cost, avoid alternative specification models and stay far away from shadow factory goods.
