A popular slow cooker has been recalled over fears it may fail to properly cook meat.
In a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, Sunbeam urged people who have purchased the Sunbeam Sous Chef™ Stir Multi Cooker model MU3000 to stop using it immediately.
“If the product is used in “slow cooker mode” (on either the high or low settings), the product may not reach and maintain a temperature during the allotted cook time that is sufficient to fully cook the food,” the statement reads.

“Consumers could be exposed to undercooked, or not properly cooked, meats.”
Customers have been told to return the slow cooker to its store of purchase for a full refund.
The recalled product was sold nationally at David Jones, JB HiFi, Myer, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, Retravision, Mitchel and Brown, Bing Lee, BiRite, BSR and Sunbeam Australia between March 2017 and May 2017.
