The very first time I used my GE Food Processor (model number 169203) that I bought from Walmart, As I was emptying the chopped food out of the main plastic holder, the blade fell out of the container and directly on my thumb. It sliced my thumb just above the joint connecting to my hand so deeply that I was afraid I had cut my thumb off. I did not have to go to the hospital and it stopped bleeding after several hours, but I still have a pronounced scar on my thumb. This happened around March 2011. I think the blade should have snapped in place and not fallen out of the machine. I have only used it one other time since and now we are returning it due to the recall.
