Seattle-based Taphandles LLC is recalling about 24,000 ceramic beer tap handles.
The tap handles can break during normal use, posing a laceration hazard to consumers, the company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves ceramic beer tap handles sold in 25 custom-made designs. “Taphandles Inc.” and “Made in China” are engraved on the gray metal base of the tap handle.
