If you’re the owner of an onion chopper, you may be at risk of a laceration hazard.
The product is the Mueller Austria Onion Chopper Pro; a kitchen item used to better chop large quantities of onions. The product comes with a locking tab to prevent injury, but the locking tab can detach from the unit during use. This can cause hands or fingers to slide into the ultra sharp blades.
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been 266 incidents that resulted in 137 laceration injuries to consumers’ hands and/or fingers.
The Onion Chopper Pro, model number M-700, was sold on Amazon from September 2016 to July 2020 for about $20. The chopper itself is a mechanism that sits atop a 4-cup clear container. There are gray stainless steel discs which are part of the chopper, and come in various grid sizes to accommodate larger or smaller dicing of onions.
The only onion choppers that are involved in this recall are those with a locking tab that can be pushed towards the blades in order to lock them in place. If you’re unsure of what model you have, the model number is located on the product or in the packaging it came from.
If you own one of these recalled Onion Chopper Pros, you are urged to immediately stop using it. You can contact Mueller Austria for a free replacement with a newly-designed locking tab.
