Bizarre new Bunnings sausage rule introduced due to OH&S concerns

rumour confirmed


The Bunnings sausage has fast become an iconic Australian food.

But even the humble snag in bread isn’t safe from the age of Occupational Health and Safety.

3AW Breakfast was alerted to a change in the serving procedure this week!

Those serving sausages must now place onion underneath the sausage, not on top as most people usually do.

Why? It prevents the onion from becoming a slipping hazard!

3AW Breakfast received the following statement from Debbie Poole, the Chief Operating Officer of Bunnings.

“Safety is always our number one priority and we recently introduced a suggestion that onion be placed underneath sausages to help prevent the onion from falling out and creating a slipping hazard.”

“This recommendation is provided to the community groups within their fundraising sausage sizzle welcome pack and is on display within the gazebos when barbeques are underway.

“Regardless of how you like your onion and snag, we are confident this new serving suggestion will not impact the delicious taste or great feeling you get when supporting your local community group.”
