Recall of the Week: Trudeau garlic duo slicers

09343a[1] 09343b[1] 

About 22,000 Trudeau garlic duo slicers manufactured by the Trudeau Corporation, of Canada, are being recalled.

The garlic duo’s slicer blades can break during use, posing a laceration hazard to users, reports the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The firm has received four reports of the product’s slicer blades breaking. No injuries were reported.

Manufactured in China sold at department and retail stores nationwide for about $20, the product is a combination garlic press and slicer.

Recalled model numbers 998009, 998010, or 998010CB were printed on the product’s packing card, hang tag, or UPC label, but not on the product. The units have "Trudeau" embossed on the handle.

Consumers should stop using the recalled garlic duo immediately, the commission advises, and contact Trudeau for directions on how to return the recalled product. Consumers will receive a free replacement garlic press and a complimentary set of three flipper measuring spoons.

For additional information, contact Trudeau toll-free at 888-887-8332 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday to Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at
