New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Pampered Chef have voluntarily recalled garlic slicers because of laceration hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on March 7, 2013.

The Pampered Chef garlic slicers were recalled after discovering that the blade on the garlic slicer can unexpectedly dislodge during use, which can pose a laceration hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves The Pampered Chef garlic slicers sold individually and with a garlic peeler. The garlic slicers were sold under product numbers 1113 (individual) and 2578 (set). The two-piece white plastic, tube shaped slicer measures 2 ¼ inches by 3 ½ inches and has two blades on the end. ‘The Pampered Chef’ is engraved on the top cover,” the CPSC reported.

At this time there has been 23 reports of blades detaching during use including one report of a consumer who cut her finger.

Consumers are advised to contact The Pampered Chef for a replacement product.
