Macy’s has recalled thousands of Martha Stewart frying pans following reports of customers being hit by metal disks that popped off during cooking.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that the round metal pieces covering the rivets on two different types of pans “can pop off and hit consumers, posing an injury hazard.”
According to the USCPSC:
This recall involves the Martha Stewart Collection 10-piece stainless steel cookware sets, which include an 8-inch and a 10-inch stainless steel frying pan. The frying pans have two rivets that attach the frying pan to the handle. The rivets have stainless steel discs on top of them. Other items included in the cookware sets are a 1-quart covered saucepan, 2-quart covered sauce pan, 3-quart covered saucepan and 6-quart covered stockpot. The recall affects only the two frying pans. UPC numbers 0733003518899, 0733003623326, 0766370840959 or 0766370980334 can be found on the product packaging or purchase receipt.
