About 207,000 Farberware fruit-slicer-and-corer products are being recalled because they might cut users' hands and fingers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.
The product's metal blade may separate from the handle. The manufacturer, Lifetime Brands Inc., has received 34 reports of the blade separating from the handle and nine reports of injuries.
The model involved in the recall is 78350 and was sold at grocery, hardware and discount stores in the United States from January 1999 through October 2006 for about $4 US.
Consumers should stop using the slicers and return them to Lifetime Brands Inc. for a refund.
