"Mention ABOUT" in Oxford Dictionary

Dear sir,

When I looked up "or else" in your dictionary, definition section 1.1 says,

"1.1 In circumstances different from those mentioned; if it were not the case." And, one of the example sentences is, ‘It was a good thing she never mentioned ABOUT it, or else I would have been really hurt.’

I thought verbs like "mention" and "discuss" are not followed by the preposition "about". I should appreciate it if you could clarify this.

Thank you very much.
