Avon Recalls 32,000 Nut Choppers with Defective Grinders
Users of an Avon brand nut chopper likely weren't expecting metal fragments with their walnut pieces.
Avon is recalling more than 32,000 nut choppers in the U.S. and Canada because the tines of the grinding mechanism can break and fall into the food being chopped. Avon received seven complaints of the choppers breaking, including two reports of users finding fragments in the chopped food.
The choppers were sold exclusively by independent Avon sales representatives nationwide and online from June 2013 through December 2013 for between about $10 and $13.
The choppers affected by the recall include identification number F3730731 on the packaging and brochure number 978-044.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled nut chopper and return it to Avon for a refund.
