NEW YORK (MainStreet) — This is a not a good thing. Macy’s (Stock Quote: M) has recalled about 960,000 of Martha Stewart’s casserole dishes after discovering that they pose a burn and laceration hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
According to the CPSC, Macy’s has received two reports of the enamel on the dishes cracking and flying off of during use. However, no injuries have been reported.
The recall deals specifically with Martha Stewart Collection (Stock Quote: MSO) Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles in 7-quart, 5.5-quart and 2.75-quart sizes. The dishes have exterior enamel finishes in red, cobalt blue, sand, green, blue, white, mustard, brown and teal and all have cream colored interior finishes. They are embossed with the Martha Stewart Collection label on the bottom of the dish and lid handle.
The dishes were sold at Macy's stores as well as at Army and Air Force Exchange Service, Marine Corps Exchange and Navy Exchange Service Command locations nationwide, and on macys.com between June 2007 and June 2011. They cost between $25 and $170.
Consumers are being advised to stop using the casseroles immediately and return them to any Macy's store for a full refund. Consumers can contact Macy's at (888) 257-5949 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. EDT or visit the company’s website if they have additional questions.
