The Pampered Chef of Addison, IL, is recalling about 286,000 garlic slicers.
A blade on the slicer can unexpectedly dislodge during use, posing a laceration hazard to the consumer. The company has received 23 reports of blades detaching during use, including one report of a consumer who cut her finger.
This recall involves The Pampered Chef garlic slicers sold individually and with a garlic peeler. The slicers were sold under product numbers 1113 (individual) and 2578 (set). The two-piece white plastic, tube shaped slicer measures 2 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches and has two blades on the end. "The Pampered Chef" is engraved on the top cover.
The slicers, manufactured in China, were sold at The Pampered Chef independent consultants nationwide and online from January 2009 through July 2011 for about $14 for the individual garlic slicer and $20 for the set.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled garlic slicers and contact The Pampered Chef for a replacement product.
