American Angler’s Electric Fillet Knives Recalled Due to Risk of Laceration
Scott Fetzer Consumer Brands has issued a recall for thousands of American Angler Electric Fillet Knives due to the possibility of laceration. The recall affects about 43,200 units sold in the U.S. and 630 units sold in Canada.
What Caused the Recall
Scott Fetzer Consumer Brands initiated the recall on Dec. 29, 2021, after receiving 23 reports of the knives becoming stuck in the “on” position. However, no injuries were reported at the time.
Between January 2019 and October 2021, the knives were offered for around $110 and $150 at Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, Amazon, and other retailers nationwide. Weihai Yuanji Outdoor Products Co., Ltd. manufactured the knives in China.
Scott Fetzer Consumer Brands tells consumers who own a knife that has been recalled to immediately stop using it, unplug and cut the power cord. After that, consumers should contact the company.
They will then be asked to give a mailing address and a photograph of the recalled product and the cut cord as proof of destruction. Scott Fetzer Consumer Brands will then send the address provided with a replacement electric filet knife. Finally, consumers should dispose of the destroyed unit properly.
