Recall of the Week: Martha Stewart Collection Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles due to laceration and burn hazard
August 22, 2011
Macy's Merchandising Group is recalling about 960,000 Martha Stewart Collection Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles.
The enamel coating on the cast iron casseroles can crack or break during use, Macy’s and the U.S. Consumer Product Commission said in a statement. This can cause the enamel to crack and fly off as a projectile, posing a risk of laceration or burn hazard to the user or bystanders.
Macy's has received two reports of the enamel cracking and flying off of the casseroles during use. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Martha Stewart Collection Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles in 7 quart, 5.5 quart, and 2.75 quart sizes, with exterior enamel finishes in red, cobalt blue, sand, green, blue, white, mustard, brown, and teal with cream colored interior finishes. The casseroles are embossed with Martha Stewart Collection on the bottom and lid handle.
Manufactured in China, the casseroles were sold at Macy's stores and AAFES, MCX, and NEX locations nationwide, and on macys.com between June 2007 and June 2011 for about $25 to $170.
Consumers should immediately stop using the casseroles and return them to any Macy's store for a full refund, the company and commission advise.
For additional information, contact Macy's toll-free at 888-257-5949 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET or visit the Macy's website at www.macys.com.
