Apple slicer caution
Product failure could cause hand cut injury
December 17, 2010

A local citizen alerted us to a possible safety issue related to an apple slicer product.

"If you just happen to have one of those apple slicers with the plastic exterior, here is what happens when the plastic finally gives out as you are slicing an apple. I should have taken a picture of my thumb .. one of those blades took a deep slice into it. Be careful if you have one of these, to hold it by the extreme exterior and make sure your fingers and thumbs are nowhere near the blades."
