Garbage Disposals Are Supposed to Suck Stuff Down, Not Spit It Back Up

Here is a creepy recall. Anaheim and Moen have recalled 147,000 garbage disposal units. The reason for the recall is a dangerous one.

According to the Consumer Product Safet Commission:

A metal component inside the disposal can break off and come out of the disposal during use, posing an impact hazard.

OK, that is not what I want to have happened when I turn on one of these disposals.

According to the CPSC, the units subject to recall were sold at “Best Buy, HD Supply, Menards, and plumbing supply stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Costco.com, HomeDepot.com, Walmart.com and other websites from December 2015 through  March 2017 for between $80 and $370 for ¾ horsepower models and $100 and $450 for 1 horsepower models.”

You can call Anaheim Mfg at 800-628-0797 or reach them online by visiting their website. They are offering replacement units.
