Libbey has received 16 reports from commercial customers of glasses breaking, including one report of a minor laceration to a restaurant patron when the glass broke during use. 

The recall involves Bristol Valley, model 8555SR, cocktail glasses with sheer rims. The glasses are made of clear glass in a 7.75-ounce cocktail design with a thin rim. The glasses measure about 6¼ inches high, 3¼ inches wide at the base, and 4¼ inches wide at the top. They were sold individually and in 24-piece cartons for commercial users.

The glasses were sold to commercial customers for use in foodservice establishments at the Libbey Outlet Store in Shreveport, La., and at various independent liquor stores nationwide from January 2013 through November 2013 for between $1 and $4 for each glass. 

For more information, contact Libbey Glass at 800-982-7063 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at and click on “Product Recall.”
