The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a notice on December 29 regarding the recall of a Martha Stewart Collection TM 10-piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set by Macy’s. According to the release, the cookware’s metal discs covering the frying pan rivet have a tendency to pop off, and could strike and subsequently injure users. Seven cases of the faulty pans have already been reported to the company, including three reports of injuries such as bruises, burns, and welts.
The recall involves approximately 121,000 units of the product, and it only includes the 8- and 10-inch stainless steel frying pans out of the entire 10-piece set that have two rivets attaching the handle to the pan. Stainless steel discs are attached on top of the rivets. The date codes of the frying pans are listed by the CPSC, and the UPC numbers found on the packaging are as follows:
Consumers are advised to stop the use of the pans immediately. Those who purchased the cookware from Macy’s or macys.com may return the product for a store credit, while those who purchased the product from Military Exchange can return the product to the store for a refund.
