Approximately 121,000 metal frying pans included in cookware sets sold at Macy’s are being recalled in the U.S. after several consumers sustained minor injuries. Reports said the recall affects Martha Stewart Stainless Steel frying pans distributed by Macy’s stores nationwide and some Military Exchanges.
The 8-inch and 10-inch frying pans included in the cookware sets sold from 2011 to 2015 have circular metal pieces covering the rivets that secure the handle in place. These metal pieces may come off and launch suddenly at the user, causing burns and bruises. Macy’s and federal authorities are aware of even incidents, three of which involved minor injuries. Only the frying pans are being recalled and consumers may still use other pieces included in the set. Consumers who have bought the cookware set are advised to stop use and return the items for a refund.
