Onion Chopper Pro Recalled After 137 Injuries Reported
On October 29, 2020, Mueller Austria recalled about 106,000 of the Onion Chopper Pro® (Model M-700) due to a serious injury hazard.
How Many People Were Injured?
Mueller Austria reported 137 people who suffered laceration injuries to their hands and fingers, and 266 incidents of the locking tab breaking.
When Were They Sold?
The recalled Onion Chopper Pros were sold on Amazon.com from September 2016 to July 2020 for about $20.
What is the Problem?
The recall involves older versions of the Onion Chopper Pro that have a defective locking tab that must be pushed towards the blades to lock into place.
Unfortunately, the tab can break, and a person’s hands and fingers can slide into the blades, resulting in lacerations.
Mueller Austria Re-Designs Onion Chopper Pro
In December 2019, Mueller Austria started selling a newly-designed onion and vegetable chopper with a locking tab that does not need to be pushed toward the blades in order to properly lock into place.
In May 2020, Mueller Austria warned consumers to stop using the older versions of the Onion Chopper Pro (Model M-700) due to a laceration hazard.
At the time, the company was unable to issue an official recall or provide consumers with a remedy due to COVID-19 restrictions.
In October 2020, Mueller Austria announced a recall and offered consumers a free replacement Onion Chopper Pro that has a new locking tab that doesn’t need to be pushed into the blades.
