Around 146,000 garbage disposals have been recalled because a metal part inside the disposal can break, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to WPRI 12, there have been 22 reported incidents, including three reports of metal pieces hitting people who use the garbage disposal.  So far, no injuries have been reported to date.

“The recall covers 10 brands of 3/4 and 1 horsepower units made by Anaheim Manufacturing Company, which is a division of Moen, Inc.”

The recalled disposals were sold from December 2015 through March 2017 at stores nationwide and online.

In a statement, Anaheim Manufacturing said, “We take any issue involving the quality or safety of our products very seriously. We identified this issue through our ongoing program of monitoring quality feedback from our customers. We have made every effort to quickly remove the affected units from the market. They are being replaced with units that meet our quality and durability standards.”

“If you have one of these recalled garbage disposals, contact Anaheim Manufacturing at 1-800-628-0797. The company will install a free replacement at no cost.”
