Walmart recalled 255,000 GE food processors today after reports of consumers getting hurt after the safety lock on the lid failed, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The 14-cup, General Electric food processors were sold exclusively in Walmart stores nationwide and online from September 2009 through February 2011 for about $50 each.

The CPSC said the safety interlock system can fail and allow the food processor to operate without the lid being locked in place, creating a laceration hazard. The agency said the food processor can also smoke and catch fire.
