Update: Onion Chopper Pro Recalled Due To Laceration Hazard

Mueller Austria is recalling about 106,000 Onion Chopper Pro [1] appliances after the company received at least “… 266 incidents of the tab breaking, resulting in 137 people who suffered laceration injuries to the hands and fingers,” according to the CPSC.

The recalled choppers were sold online from September 2016 through July 2020 for about $20. If you purchased a Mueller Austria Onion Chopper that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Mueller Austria for a free replacement model with a newly-designed locking tab.

The recalled Onion Chopper Pros began being called back on October 29, 2020.

Pushed Toward the Blades

What’s the Problem with the Austria Onion Chopper Pro?

This warning affects about 72,000 of Mueller Austria’s Onion Chopper Pro, model #M-700, according to a news release [2] by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

The Onion Chopper Pro features a defective locking tab that must be pushed towards the blades in order to properly lock into place, CPSC said. The product’s locking tab can detach from the rest of the unit during use, causing hands and fingers to slide into the blades.

Affected Choppers were sold online for about $20 from Sept. 2016 to Dec. 2019.

Mueller Re-Designs Onion Chopper Pro

In December 2019, Mueller started selling a newly-designed onion and vegetable chopper with locking tabs that do not need to be pushed toward the blades in order to properly lock into place.

In May 2020, Mueller Austria warned consumers to stop using the older versions of the Chopper Pro (Model M-700) due to a serious laceration hazard.

At the time, the company was unable to issue an official recall or provide consumers with a remedy due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In October 2020, Mueller Austria announced a recall and offered consumers a replacement Chopper Pro that has a new locking tab that doesn’t need to be pushed towards the blades.

Mueller Austria introduced a new Onion Chopper Pro that features a different locking tab configuration in Dec. 2019. The warning only applies to the older version of the chopper which features a locking tab that slides toward the blades.
