A metal component inside the disposal can break off and come out of the disposal during use
Anaheim Manufacturing has issued a recall for approximately 146,000 garbage disposals that were sold in the U.S. (an additional 2,700 of the affected disposals were sold in Canada).
A metal component inside the disposal can break off and come out of the disposal during use, posing an impact hazard to those nearby.
This recall involves 3/4 and 1 horsepower garbage disposals. A full list of affected brand names, model numbers, and serial numbers can be viewed here.
The disposal housings were sold in silver, gray, black, and blue—and have the brand name printed on them. The brand name, model number, and serial number are printed on a label on the bottom or side of the disposals.
The recalled garbage disposals were sold at Best Buy, HD Supply, Menards, and plumbing supply stores nationwide and online through Amazon, Costco, Home Depot, Walmart, and other websites from December 2015 through March 2017 for between $80 and $370 for the 3/4 horsepower models and $100 and $450 for the 1 horsepower models.
To date, there have been 22 reports of a metal component coming out of a disposal, including three reports of a broken component hitting consumers. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled garbage disposals and contact Anaheim Manufacturing to arrange for a free replacement disposal to be installed at no cost to the consumer.
