Recall of the Week: Cost Plus glass bubble knobs due to laceration hazard

Buble Knobs green 800Cost Plus is recalling about 251,400 glass bubble knobs.

The knobs can break and expose sharp pieces of glass, posing a risk of laceration to the consumer, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Cost Plus has received five reports of broken knobs resulting in five reports of hand and/or finger lacerations.

This recall involves glass bubble knobs used on cabinet doors and drawers.

The knobs were sold in two sizes and six colors including: blue, amethyst, pink, green, smoke, and clear. The larger knobs are about 1.25 inches in diameter. The smaller knobs are about .75 inches in diameter.

The glass knobs are attached to bronze-colored hardware.

The glass knobs were sold at Cost Plus World Market and World Market stores nationwide from October 2010 to April 2014 for between $2 and $4.

Consumers should immediately stop using the glass knobs and return them to any Cost Plus World Market or World Market store for a full refund, the company and commission advise.
