These recalled disposals were sold by Best Buy, HD Supply, Menards, and plumbing supply stores nationwide and online at Amazon, Costco, HomeDepot, Walmart and other sites from December 2015 through March 2017 for between $80 and $370 for ¾ horsepower models and $100 and $450 for 1 horsepower models.

    I just got a super duper one less than a year ago. They’re gonna charge me to change it out. The recall should pay for these!

      Heather, I found this in the FAQs:

      How much will this cost?
      Nothing. We are replacing the affected disposal units at no cost to you.

      I’m not sure who you can contact to resolve this, but there is a “Contact Us” link at the top of the page – maybe they can help?

        Thanks, Jen!

    We haven’t installed ours yet for a few reasons. It’s still in the box. The email I got today said, “contact Anaheim Manufacturing to arrange for a free replacement disposal to be installed at no cost to the consumer.” Does this mean they will provide a replacement and install it for us? Even though we haven’t installed the defective one? Thoughts?

      You could always give them a call for more information. 1-800-628-0797

    How dangerous! I always have DH run the disposal. I don’t like them in general. It’s scary, noisy & am always afraid of something sharp flying out! The for the post, ours is listed, much appreciated!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re most welcome!

    THANKS!! We had one from Costco installed last year!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

    I’m sure glad we did not buy the ones on the recall. We bought InSinkErator Evolution 1-HP. Worth every penny of $339. So quiet. If you are looking to replace choose this one.

    • Erin

      I think we have the same one. So quiet! Worth the money.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the feedback Sue!

    Collin – this is a HUGE public service. Thank you for posting!

      You’re very welcome Cindy!
