Macy's recalls over 100,000 popular cookware sets after injury reports
Around 121,000 sets of Martha Stewart 10-piece stainless steel cookware sets have been recalled by Macy's. These sets include an 8-inch and a 10-inch stainless steel frying pan, both of which have two rivets that attach the frying pan to the handle.
The reason for the recall? These rivets have stainless steel discs on top of them, and when they are used, they can pop off unexpectedly, which poses an injury hazard. To date, there have been seven reports of injuries when the covers popped off, which include burns and bruises.
The sets also include a 1-quart covered saucepan, 2-quart covered saucepan, a 3-quart covered saucepan and a 6-quart covered stockpot. This recall, however, affects only the two frying pans. UPC numbers 0733003518899, 0733003623326, 0766370840959 or 0766370980334 can be found on the product packaging or purchase receipt.
The recalled products also have one of the following date codes inscribed on the bottom of the pans: 70118, 70138, 70218, 70228, 70318, 70328, 70338, 70418, 70428, 70438, 70518, 70528, 70618, 70628, 70718, 70728, 70818, 70828, 70918, 70928, 71018, 71108, 71118, 71208, 71218, HF10114, HF10414, HF10513, HF10514, HF10613, HF10614, HF10713, HF10813, HF10913, HF11113.
These sets were purchased at Macy’s stores nationwide as well as at military Exchanges and also online at www.macys.com between January 2011 and September 2015. The price point at the time of purchase was around $170 at Macy’s and $90 at military Exchanges.
If you have these recalled frying pans, stop using them immediately, and return them to any Macy's store or www.macys.com. You will receive store credit for the full value of the two frying pans (the other items in the set are not affected and do not need to be returned). If your set was purchased at a military Exchange, you can return them in a similar fashion and receive a full refund.
