World reacts to Bunnings sausage scandal

Bunnings Has A New Policy About Putting Onions Under The Sausage And It's Just Not On

But Bunnings Warehouse chief operating officer Debbie Poole has left some sausage specialists sour over her suggestion to reorder the summer specialty. Now, the onions have to go UNDERNEATH the sausage in case they fall out and people slip on them...

Commercial radio stations in New Zealand also seized on the Bunnings sausage story, with More FM stationing a reporter in a auto park with instructions to try and slip on onions.

It is perhaps a testament to how iconically Australian the Bunnings sausage sizzle is that such a seemingly trivial health and safety proposal has caused so much outrage.

The man who sparked Bunnings' controversial new rules for sausage sizzles says it's no laughing matter.

Thousands of groups and charities apply to run sausage sizzles every week and receive every dollar raised at the hotplates.

For the uninitiated, a dash of context: Australian community groups often set up fundraiser barbecues outside Bunnings locations, at which they sell open-faced sausage sandwiches, typically composed of a sausage, fried onions and tomato sauce (known to Americans as ketchup) on a slice of white bread.

The Herald Sun reported that Bunnings corporate has changed policy, which means onions will be put onto the bread first, before the sausage, as it reduces the risk of onions falling off and creating a slip hazard.


On social media, the change was met with confusion and mixed reactions.

"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", she said.

"I agree, I agree", said Morrison.

Others expressed concern that placing onions underneath the sausage would leave the bread soggy, increasing the risk of the whole hot dog collapsing. People of all ages do this, it's part of our Australian life that we support local community organizations.

The discussion got so fevered that Prime Minister Scott Morrison found himself fielding a reporter's question on Wednesday about whether Bunnings' guidance was "un-Australian". "Frankly I'm not going to give them any recipe hints".

Another victim of a fall caused by a slippery onion at Bunnings has hit out at the national ridicule over stricter safety guidelines for the hardware chain's iconic sausage sizzle.

"I agree, I agree", said Morrison.
