146,000 Garbage Disposals Recalled Over Flying Metal Pieces

If you’ve got a garbage disposal in your kitchen, you’ll probably want to check it against this list of disposals — from brands like Kenmore, Moen, and Frigidaire — that have been recalled over concerns that they may send metal pieces flying out of your sink.

Anaheim Manufacturing, the company that produced the garbage disposals for the brands, announced the recall this week, after finding the disposals pose an injury hazard to customers.

According to a notice posted with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the metal component inside the disposal can break off and come out of the disposal during use.

So far, Anaheim has received 22 reports of a metal component coming out of a disposal, including three reports of a broken component hitting consumers. However, no injuries have been reported.

The CPSC says the recall covers disposals from 10 different brands. The affected products (full list below) were sold between Dec. 2015 and March 2017 at major national retailers and online, with prices ranging from $80 to $450.

Affected products can be identified by the brand name, model number, and serial number printed on a table on the bottom or side of the disposal.

The following disposals are covered by the recall:
