Scary Garbage Disposal

Scary Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals freak us out. They grind menacingly, and harbor unseen dangers to flesh and bone. There’s a good reason these things have been featured in so many horror movies.

Some garbage disposals may even bring horror movies to life, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The CPSC is warning consumers about a recall involving 146,000 Anaheim and Moen garbage disposals due to an “impact hazard.”

Apparently, a metal component inside the disposal can break off and come out of the disposal during use, posing this impact hazard.

The affected disposals were sold 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.

They sold for between $80 and $370 for ¾ horsepower models and $100 and $450 for 1 horsepower models.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled garbage disposals and contact Anaheim Manufacturing to arrange for a free replacement disposal to be installed at no cost to the consumer.  

If you think you have one of these nasty beasts, reach Anaheim Manufacturing at 800-628-0797 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.anaheimmfg.com and click on “Product Recalls” for more information.
