I understand that the correct way of wiring under-sink food disposals is to use either armored (BX) cable from a junction box to the unit under the sink, or to have an outlet under the sink with a flexible appliance cable and plug on the unit, plugged into the outlet. I see many houses with non-metallic sheathed (Romex) wire run from a hole in the wall or a junction or switch box to the unit. Do you call out such an arrangement as in need of correction?
