The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced the recall of approximately 286,000 Pampered Chef garlic slicers due to a laceration hazard. The Pampered Chef has received 23 reports of the blades detaching while in use, including one incident where the blades cut a woman’s finger.
The recalled garlic slicers were sold individually or with a garlic peeler, with the product number 2578 for the set and 1113 for the individual slicer. The tube-shaped white plastic slicer measures 2.25 inches by 3.5 inches and includes two blades at the end. The top cover is engraved with “The Pampered Chef.” They were sold from January 2009 through July 2011 by The Pampered Chef independent consultants across the nation, as well as online at www.pamperedchef.com. The individual slicer was sold for about $14 and the set with the peeler was sold for about $20.
Consumers are instructed to immediately stop using the recalled slicers and contact The Pampered Chef at [email protected] or (877) 917-2433 for a replacement product.
