Chantelle Wyld said her seven-year-old daughter was under surveillance in February this year while using one of the knives.

She said it snapped as the little girl sliced ​​through the soft part of a watermelon.

“It didn’t even take a month for it to snap. My seven-year-old daughter used it to cut the red soft part of a watermelon,” she said.

“I’m so lucky my daughter wasn’t hurt.”

Ms Wyld showed Daily Mail Australia her Facebook Messenger message to Coles about the incident.

Coles responded by saying, ‘We’re sorry to see this! We will ensure that this feedback is shared with the relevant teams so that they are aware. We are sorry for the disappointment caused.’

Mrs. Wyld said she thought the knives should be recalled or come with a warning.

Bridget Tressider said one of the knives cut her husband’s finger when it split in the same spot as Mrs. Wyld’s when he tried to slice through a frozen dim-sim.

Ms Tressider blamed the incident on the quality of the knives and said if it had happened to several people it might have been a ‘dodgy batch’.

‘If there is cause for concern and more than one case has broken down… yes… [it should be] remembered,” she said.

‘[I] called Coles and was told to Google MasterChef to get contact details. Hard to find. Luckily I wasn’t hurt, and neither were my kids sitting on the couch.’

Another Twitter user said that one of her MasterChef knives splinted and stuck a piece of metal in her palm while eating on January 1 this year.

“My roommates got some and while I was cooking with one… I felt pain,” Catherine said.

“I discovered that I had gotten a metal splinter in my palm from the handle.”

“I just sent a feedback form through the Coles website. I know it may seem foolish to complain about, and that a splinter is a small, easily repairable injury,” she wrote.

“But it’s a safety risk that can negatively affect many people, if other knives have the same problem.”

There were six knives in the collection, which are no longer sold in stores.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Coles Australia for comment.
