Bunnings Changed Its Sausage Sizzle Rules & Aussies Are NOT Having It

The placement of the onions on a sausage sanga has been a hot topic around Australia this week.

TODAY Show host Karl Stefanovic is one of dozens of Aussie's who have been left gobsmacked by the news.

"This will ruin Australia", remarked a news anchor on The Today Show. "You don't mess with perfection", the Channel 9 presenter said.

You might say they've hit a snag.


After the news was made public, many baffled and bewildered customers took to social media to weigh in on the issue under the hashtag "oniongate".

However, a counter-narrative has begun to emerge against the predictable outrage which followed the bombshell announcement.

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

She said: "I think we should make a joint commitment that on our watches, the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle shall continue".

"If your biggest worry is whether the onion or the sausage goes on first, you must be living a hell of a life with no major problems!"

The Victorian woman came forward on Wednesday to reveal she was another individual who was taking on Bunnings after taking a tumble at one of their stores in February.

It's understood Bunnings management recommended the change in a bid to stop the onion from falling on the ground.

"Thank your own fellow customers for this change not just Bunnings!".

"Safety is always our No. 1 priority", Debbie Poole, a spokeswoman for Bunnings Warehouse, said in a statement.

It is understood the rule was quietly ushered in recently but word spread this week, prompting a flurry of interest.

The chain - which often runs barbecue fundraisers known as "sausage sizzles" at its stores - said there were concerns people might be injured by stray onions if the slippery vegetables ended up on the floor.

"Even if it's the smallest change, and it's going to change our eating habits of the humble sausage, if it's going to reduce the impact of someone injuring themselves then it has to be positive", he said.

"Regardless of how you like your onion and snag (the term used for the sausage in Australia), we are confident this new serving suggestion will not impact the delicious taste or great feeling you get when supporting your local community group".
