19K kitchen slicers recalled due to laceration hazard

BETHESDA, Md. – The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of nearly 19,000 kitchen slicers due to a laceration hazard.

The slicers are produced by Sharper Image and Frigidaire. They are a non-electric food preparation item used to slice and julienne vegetables.

The slicers have a clear plastic container to capture the sliced food, two blade attachments (one large-blade slicer and one small-blade julienne slicer), a holder for the attachments and a plastic knob component to move and hold the food.

The CPSC says the firm has received four reports of the small blades separating from the julienne attachment during food preparation. No injuries have been reported.

The commission said about 230 of the kitchen products were also sold in Canada.
