Safety Statement on Stand Mixers and Lead
KitchenAid follows lead safety guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and the European Commission.
All KitchenAid stand mixer accessories are safe to use.
Whirlpool Corporation is a 111-year-old company with a commitment to safety. KitchenAid, a division of Whirlpool Corporation, is a 103-year-old company with the exact same commitment.
It is a fact that aluminum alloys can contain trace levels of impurities, but there is no recall of these accessories for that reason. We are aware of social media efforts intended to exploit misleading information concerning the safety of stand mixer accessories as a basis to demand replacement parts. Whirlpool Corporation strongly disagrees with any efforts to spread misleading information concerning the safety of these accessories.
KitchenAid follows lead safety guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and the European Commission. We remain committed to continue evolving the design of the stand mixer as this guidance continues to develop.
All current models of aluminum accessories have a coating that improves usage. This coated accessory is also tested for lead content to ensure it is safe. Whirlpool Corporation further recognizes some consumers may have a preference for non-aluminum accessories and offers certain stainless steel accessories that satisfy this preference.
