Walmart Is Recalling More Than 50,000 Units of This Popular Vegetable Chopper Due to Increased Cutting Risk

If you've recently purchased a new vegetable chopper from Walmart, you may want to check it against this recall. 

On April 4, 2024, Walmart announced its recall of the "Mainstays Electric Mini Choppers" due to an increased risk of laceration. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, "The chopper’s blade can operate unexpectedly during assembly or when not enclosed in the container, posing a laceration hazard to consumers." 

According to the Food Poisoning Bulletin, Walmart has received five reports of injuries on the product that is exclusively sold in its stores. Two of those injuries required medical attention and stitches. The injuries, Walmart explained in its recall notice, all occurred during assembly or during cleaning and handling of the chopper. 

Each of the choppers is made with a green lid and white base and is rechargeable and cordless, with the three blades attached to the white plastic base. Anyone who has purchased the chopper can bring it back to their nearest Walmart for an immediate refund. 

This, however, isn't the only product Walmart has recalled in recent days. On April 8 it also recalled the Black+Decker model HGS011 Easy Garment Steamers, including those that were repaired as part of the previous recall in November 2022. The steamers, Walmart explained in its recall, were sold in several colors. Walmart is recalling the item as it "can expel, spray, or leak hot water during use, posing a burn hazard to consumers." 

Also on April 8 Walmart recalled 8.2 million defective bags of Tide, Gain, Ace and Ariel Laundry Detergent packets. As Walmart noted, "The outer packaging meant to prevent access to the contents can split open near the zipper track, posing a risk of serious injury to children and other vulnerable populations if the contents of the laundry detergent packets are ingested, as well as posing a risk of skin or eye injuries. Ingestion of a large quantity of any surfactant-containing household cleaning products can cause death among individuals with underlying health issues." Like the other products, Walmart is encouraging customers to bring the product into their nearest store for a full refund. See all of Walmart's recalls at
