Pampered Chef Garlic Slicer Recall Issued Due to Detaching Blades
At least 23 reports of blades dislodging during use have resulted in a recall of about 286,000 Pampered Chef Garlic Slicers, due to a potential laceration hazard.
The Pampered Chef Garlic Slicers recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on March 7, after the manufacturer received at least 23 reports of the slicer blade detaching during use, causing at least one report of a consumer cutting her finger.
The recall consists of Pampered Chef garlic slicers sold individually and in sets with a garlic peeler. The garlic peelers sold individually have product number 1113 and the sets containing the garlic peeler have the product number 2578. The two-piece set measures 2 1/4 by 3 1/2 inches with blades on both ends and has a tube shaped slicer. The slicers were sold in white plastic and have “Pampered Chef” engraved on the top cover.

The recalled garlic slicers were sold by Pampered Chef independent consultants nationwide and online at www.pamperedchef.com from January 2009 through July 2011 for about $14 for the individual and $20 for the set including peeler. The slicers were manufactured in China and imported by Leifheit International USA, Inc. of Melville, New York and distributed by The Pampered Chef, of Addison, Illinois.
The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the recalled garlic slicers immediately and contact The Pampered Chef at (877) 917-2433 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a replacement product.
